    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.

Antenna for HT1000

Not open for further replies.
Nov 29, 2006
I'm looking to upgrade the antenna on my HT1000 as well as on my Kenwood TK260. Both units use the SMA style connector. I need the antenna to operate between 151mhz and 155mhz. I currently have the short, approximately 6", antennas on each of them.

I've searched the internet looking for a "high-gain" or "long whip" antenna and haven't come across any, although i know they make them because most of my co-workers have them on their radios. All the extra ones i've been finding laying around are broken/taped/unusable.

Thanks for the help! If anyone knows where to buy one i would greatly appreciate it!

There is a good company called Epcom (El Paso Communications). They have great prices on the antennas you are looking for. Do a google search for "Epcom" and it will come up.

You would have to cross reference these to other manufacture
part numbers if they are not available from moto anymore but
my guess is moto or moto dealers still sell these.
