• 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:

This is what I found with the testing I have done(4 days). I resently purchased a Max Systems 8HH and a 8BA. Tested against my Radio Shack 800 mhz Antennas. I live in a brick home, so my receiving isn't the best inside, but here we go. As far as in home reception I could not tell any difference. When I moved my scanners outside, both Max Systems Antenna picked up more(three sites) than the Radio Shack 800 mhz antennas. I also found that my Pro-96 picked up more than my Pro-2096. Will keep testing and keep you informed. Have 2 yaggi antennas but don't have them up yet. Let you know. Happy Scanning!!!!

I'm finding that my RS 800 works better in the house then the Max. I have never tried Max outside though since I don't want to take the chance of stabbing myself in the side :)
