    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.

They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Scantenna problem?

Seems my Scantenna picks up better on UHF and 800 but is down on VHF from my mobile antenna. Scantenna is at 10 feet which is a little lower than the mobile antenna, but it should pick up just the same or better. I understand there is no gain on the Scantenna so I may have hurt myself. It will go up to 30' soon.
