• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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 have a Larson Dual band ham antenna on my car, I only seem to get noise when the humidity is real high and driving through fog. Any other time I don't notice any noise.

Wind noise? With a 14 inch antenna? I get more road noise from my tires than I do with any antenna that I have ever used. The NMO-150/450/800 is a very good antenna for any mobile installation, and is best mounted on the roof, as is any other antenna, up in the clear with a big ground plane.
