    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.

They resonate within a specific frequency range. Discone antennas cover a very wide spectrum of frequencies. It does not matter what position they are placed in since it is an omni-directional antenna. The longer elements are for lower frequencies.

The tram 1411 is a very nice antenna but it didn't work for me.
I bought it from buytwowayradios.com
I NOW have a Yagi coming with 11db gain I got off eBay coming,guess I will see if that works.
I'm told I'm getting RF from a cell tower across the field from where I live and a direction antenna is my only hope to receive simulcast in Wichita.
