    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'm not sure if this should be in the antenna forum or not, but i'll ask here to get some of the fellow Uniden owners opinions.

I found a few that appeared to work pretty well, I would like to have a shorter stubby antenna for when I'm in confined places, and I'd like to have one thats all for performance.

I'm not sure how much gain matters when receiving only, but looking at this antenna: http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/hamantht/1076.html , it has more gain then this: http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/hamantht/2975.html . I was also looking at a shorter almost all-band antenna, and came upon this: http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/hamantht/4002.html

I'm open to all suggestions and opinions. :)
