• 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:

I doubt it will be any better than the Radio Shack 800MHz antenna. And such an elaborate ad for ONLY ONE $10 antenna? Oops, that's $20 if you include shipping.

FWIW, it looks like the laird EXE-806-BNX ... I have the little brother to that antenna: the EXC (4") and it is good on the eys but not on the ears ... I still like my RS800 ... but I'm not sure how the longer laird would compare ... just my 2cents :)

I believe the Laird and Antenex antennas are one in the same. Antenex is part of Laird Technologies. I have the Antenex and it is a good antenna. I don't have the RS800 so I can't compare the two.

1/2 dozen one way, 6 the other :)

I wish I had the antenex/laird 8" model to compare all three ...
