    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.

Looking for coax connector that goes under the window

I am needing to join the coax from outside antenna to a connector that fits under the window in order to get it into the house. Any suggestions as to what brand. I see the RG-6 ones on Amazon. Just wanted to see if there were others out there before getting one of those. I am primarily interested in 800 trunking frequencies.

This is what I'm using for my base radio, dual band ham (144/440). Works great. When I'm not talking the radio scans all the local fire/rescue, police and ems channels. I have had it six years with no problems, antenna is about 40ft above ground and using LMR coax.
