• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Looks like a Watson on your SDS100, and is that with the stock adapter?


Looking good! I'd say you are covered :)


I’m using the Diamond RH77CA. I’m using the Uniden supplied SMA/BNC adapter with it. I used a black zip tie around it so I could hold it to remove the BNC antenna without the thing unscrewing. Uniden made the adapter so small you can’t get your fingers around it to remove a BNC antenna. I may try to find a o-ring to fit it later.

Does the scanner shake around with it only being held by the mic clip holder? I bought the ProClip mount too, but the scanner shakes around too much to use it.

It helps when removing the BNC antenna to push into the body of the radio with your thumb and forefinger before you twist the BNC a 1/4 turn.

That pushing in takes the pressure of the spring washer inside the antenna side of the connection off the two small stubs. That makes it easier to twist off the antenna and leave the adaptor behind.

Or just get the SMA version like everyone else and avoid the signal loss from adapter.
