    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 currently use an Antennacraft ST2 outside on my BCD996XT. It's picking up transmissions 60+ miles away. Not bad for the $35 I spent on it. It all depends on what kind of systems you're wanting to listen to. I primarily use the antenna to pick up the local EDACS system and VHF in the county. Great antenna though!

It should do the trick! The system I listen to 45 miles away is a Motorola and picks up nice and clear!
