    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.

Hi peeps. Need your ideas. I've been reading and reading blogs and searching the internet. What is the best base antenna for wide freq scanning receiving no transmitting? I have a clear line of sight for the most part of riverside, ca. I'm using a radio shack pro-2052.

I was reading up on the scantenna and found out that They are Ok on 800Mhz,but not great. I mostly listen to 800mhz trunking mode.
