• 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:

Keep in mind that while the marketing speak in the description says it'll cover down to 25MHz, reality is that a short antenna like either of those is going to be a very poor performer for low band VHF.

You can't cheat physics. Using an antenna that small and expecting good results on low frequencies is setting yourself up for disappointment.

I think the through the glass part is what made it so bad for me.

Well I'm using a wire antenna in my windshield now that isn't horrible. So I think the tram will work good too and if it isn't I will go with a comtelco all band or a Larson triband.
