    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:

Since your limiting the mounting option to just your roof & the antenna has to be less then 13' tall, "no pun intented" but that's a very tall order. Here goes. Note the extremely limited bandwidth that these antennas are set for. Good luck.

How well do these type of antennas work? Has anyone had good luck with them? It will only be a recieve only antenna.
Thanks!!

if it is only a Rx antenna, go with a Phantom. They are short and stout, and will perform quite well when surrounded by metal (good ground plane).

I agree with code3cowboy, the phantom antenna should do the job perfectly for RX only. However, it almost looks like a funky GPS antenna, and is about the size of a coke can, and you can get them in black or white, depending on your preference.
