• 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've got five scanners setup under different agencies as I work for two counties and EMS/Fire/Police throughout each . This has been the easiest way to monitor, however I'd like to set them up with external antennas outside my window. Is there a way to use a splitter to have 4-5 all go to one antenna or what would be the best option for this? I'm not familiar with the hardware needed for this, as I've only seen splitters that lets me run two into one antenna. Thanks for your time!

Take your splitter, and divide input by output. A splitter will split 1 in by (x)out out, i.e 1 in 5 out, each out will get 1/5th the original signal. Extrapolate as per your splitter. Best is to find a scanner that will best receive all your systems on a dedicated antenna.

Others will correct as necessary.

You need a multicoupler. It will connect X amount of radios to one antenna. Read the sticky at the top of this page for tons of info on this subject.
