• 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:

My Dad has a HP1 and the standard Uniden antenna seems to do well,

any recommendations on a telescopic antenna that he might be able to adjust. for better VHF aircraft ?

Take a look at this one. It worked well for me on my HP-1, and can be adjusted to a length appropriate for whatever band you're interested in. There is a frequency chart with suggested lengths on the antenna itself. It has a swivel, so it can be collapsed and 'folded down' to lay across the top of the scanner.

I use the same antenna on my HP-1 and it works very well, much better than the stock antenna.
