    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.

I have a Tecsun S2000 which has BNC antenna connectors on it. Is there a way to use the antenna that came with my Tecsun PL-880? Ever since I got this radio, I've only been able to use the telescopic antenna.

Thanks all

Are you talking about the clip on wire antenna?

Then try one of these:

Added in edit:
Most shops that sell electronic test equipment will have these. They are a common accessory. There's also a ton of them on e-Bay. There isn't much to them, so buying a used one would be pretty safe if it looked to be in good condition.


I'm talking about the one that plugs into the antenna jack on the side of the radio.
