    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:

This antenna reminds me a lot of the old A/S MONR33.

Has anyone ever used one of these for UHF and, even better, have you tried it for VHF as well?

DPD Productions - Scanner, Aviation, NOAA, Low-Band, 700 MHz Public Safety, Base & Mobile Radio Antennas for Commercial & Hobbyist Applications
I haven't used this specific antenna, but I currently use two of the DPD base antennas and I've had them for about 4 years. They are good, high quality antennas. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the one in question if I had a need for it. Search this forum and you will find a lot of discussion about DPD Productions antennas.
These are the antennas I use:
DPD Omni-X Multiband
DPD 700-1000 MHz LP

Yep, I have a DPD 800MHz 5/8 over 5/8 and I love it. I just wanted to know if the 5/8 over 5/8 for UHF would give me an edge in certain situations or not...

Thanks.
