    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 the ST-2 is now not available, does anyone know of an equivalent product or an antenna that performs as well as the trusty St-2 did? ie; like for like.

The Radio Shack 20-044 scanner antenna is essentially the identical antenna but it has blue-colored insulators while the "genuine" Antennacraft ST2 has black-colored insulators. FYI there is currently a brand-new Radio Shack 20-044 antenna available here: BRAND NEW RARE BASE SCANNER ANTENNA | eBay

The Diamond D3000N is an awesome heavy duty Disconne antenna. Completely love it. Make sure you get the antenna with a N connector. I pretty much believe that all the D3000N series antenna's come with N connector.

Make sure you run LMR400 feedline wire to your scanner radios so you get no loss. You can't go wrong.

And if you have multiple scanners or radios you can run that LMR400 with an N connector into one of these awesome Multicouplers then you will have a complete awesome setup with 1 antenna
