    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:

Half wave folded dipole set up for an omni pattern. Spacing from the mast/mount determines the pattern. But I do NOT see any coax cables on the three antennas..........

My guess is 160 mHz for broadcast remote pick up.

You guys are trying way too hard.

This is a screen grab from the video game Far Cry 5: https://farcry5.gamepedia.com/Central_Radio_Tower

It's not real, it's a video game.
Obviously copied after a real folded dipole, but that's it.
Yes it is XD. But I see those antennas on repeater towers a lot around my town and I didn't really feel like going out to snap a pic of one, so I used Far Cry 5, lol.

That's fair. You got the photo you need. Just pointing it out for the guys complaining about not seeing coaxial cable.
