    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:

New to scanning here, had a Pro-97 for a couple months...then lost it somewhere for a couple months. Decided to go out and buy another one and here I am with the Pro-164.


I listen to the County Sheriffs EDACS and is crystal clear pretty much anywhere I go. And that is with my stock antenna, but CHP and FIRE come in horrible. Looking for something like a mobile/indoor antenna (which I will only use at home) just to help with reception. Nothing that has to be installed. I am moving into a condo in a month so cant have outside antennas.


Does anyone know of a good place here in Riverside County that I can purchase a better antenna for my scanner today? Radio Shack is down the street also, any advice?

I am located near Menifee and Lake Elsinore.

Thanks!

P.S. I always see this house near me that has a tower and looks like HAM/Scanner maybe. It is in Sun City by Stater Brothers, Rite-Aid and Albertsons. You can see it easily if driving down Newport Rd towards Canyon Lake. (Just curious if that person is one here)

I found that the magnetic mount antenna from radio shack works pretty well for picking up the CHP and Fire even inside my house. This is what I use when listening in my house, So it should work pretty well in your condo.

or if you want a permanent antenna that you can put out on your balcony:
