    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:

Howdy yall, I recently installed a Pro-197 in my truck to better listen to everything going on the county/city. My radio for the fire department is an old analog radio and everything else is on P25 digital. What would be the best antenna for listening in the P25 (i believe 800 mhz) range? I have the occasional VHF frequency in there for some older systems but 98% of what I listen to is on P25. I bought a 36" magnetic mount but I can't find a place to mount it that makes me happy. Are there any good glass mount or very small antennae that yall would recommend? Thanks!

I use a Comet M-24S ham antenna that I purchased for ham dual band, but it receives extremely well on 800,154, and 460 MHz. and is less than 20 inches high. It has a SMR connector (HP1,396XT) or you may need a BNC adapter. There are cheaper scanner antennas out there but this is a good commercial grade quality antenna.
