    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.

Has anyone assembled this antenna without using the top element?
I want to install this antenna under my Diamond X-200A on the same mast with a short stand off mount.
I do not have any need for the lower frequency coverage with the Discone because my reciever only goes down to 60 MHZ.
I only want to monitor between 118-450 MHZ so I here that this antenna is wat I need.
Thanks

Yeah,
I have used without the top whip. it still does a fine job...but you loose alot of your Low band stuff.(30-50mhz) Some people even say the top whip messes up the Uhf band some how.


Good Luck,
Jack
