    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.

I'm using a Wilson 301111 Yagi indoor with good results. Pointed towards 2 towers that are for the most part, inline with each other and my location. For the price, very happy. Not sure how it compares to the Yagi Y8066 you mention.

Like Noride mentioned, Are the systems towers in the same general direction where you can point the Yagi, if you are between towers you may want something omni.............Hoser
