    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:

Looking for a base antenna for my new BCT15X.
Will be mounted to a mast on the roof about 30-40ft HAAT.

Came across this last night looking for some low cost options.
Has anyone else used / have any experience with one?

Like the fact that it is tunable without any cutting, as I will be able to retune and use it for a dedicated 2meter antenna if/when I start using the scanner for much else than VHF monitoring.

Seems to have decent reviews @ eham.

Just looking for input if anyone has any.
Thank you.
