    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 "need" to get a second multi-band antenna for my shack and I'm sure it'll be the Scantenna, more or less so I can compare it to my 20-176 and settle the debate for myself. 2 questions about it that I either couldnt find answers to by searching or was just too lazy to search hard enough...

1) Does the antenna come with mounting hardware? If not, what did you use to mount it?

2) All the pictures show it mounted on a horizontal cross beam. Does it not mount to a vertical beam?

Thanks,

Andy

edit: I have no idea why I posted this question here. Damn finals week. I'm far too tired these days. Can a mod move it to the antenna forum? Thanks.

It comes with the mounting hardware, and you can mount it to a vertical mast standoff. Hoser

Hi Andy:

My Scantenna is attached to a 10' vertical pole from RS. I also got the 12" wall mount brackets from RS. It's mounted about 35' feet up near the roof eave. Picture is below for you.

Thanks for the quick responses guys - So does it actually come with that horizontal metal piece that projects it away from the vertical mast? That would be excellent.
