    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:

I have a BCD436HP which I'm really enjoying. What a learning curve as I'm new to all of this. I'm learning to make favorite lists so I can tweek it some more. But to the question, what is the best type of antenna that I can get for this unit. I will be carrying this with me, and in the car, etc. Here is the List of areas I listen to.
St. Mary Parish, Louisiana (LA) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference
And if anyone has any other programming information that I can use based on my area that would be a tremendous help. Ever learning. Lol. Unfortunately it will probably take me another month of messing with this unit to actually get it tuned in the way it needs to be. But I'm enjoying the process.

I can also say the Comet CH-32 is a good antenna. Normally I would recommend the Diamond Rh77ca but this antenna is tuned for 140-150 ish and 440 ish so it won't work well for 700mhz digital, but it will work very good for the non digital frequencies listed as most I see are around the 154.xx range.
