• 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:

The RS magmount which can be easily modded for 700/800, and the Hustler MRM B which can also be modded fairly easily! Neither is an high gain one, but they are fairly cheap and good to go when you know what to do with them... I highly recommend having one dedicated to MSWIN, and another for the VHF UHF stuff still widely in use down there.

Unless it is an high gain duck that is quacking on the specific band you want to go paddling around in LOL... Like the RS 800 ducky that is better than most mag mounts unless they too are high gainers! Now if only there was an way to get an mag mount with an BNC to hook that RS 800 ducky too... :)

I think I will order one soon as well. The RS 800mhz antenna does a good job on my 536 when it's in the car, but on an external mag mount, it should be outstanding!

"I have an antenna that says 800mhz, It is about 6 or 7 inches tall. Do you think, it will be ok for the 700mhz MSWIN system?
