    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.

Hey all you Scantenna owners,
Where is the most popular place to get a Scantenna purchase?
And how does it compare on the 225-400mhz area compared to a discone?

Just to vouch for it...

I bought a Scantenna about 4 years ago and put it 25ft up on a home-made mast using iron gas pipe from the local hardware store.

It's still up there after hard Memphis storms and there's nary a flaw.

Great antenna, I definitely recommend it.

I don't remember where I got it, sorry. :(

I've had great luck with these folks... http://www.antennawarehouse.com/Scanner/Scan-index.htm

They claim to have a "heavy duty" Scantenna that I've had up on the mast for a good amount of time now.

Good luck!

I also purchased from these guys a couple years ago--wanted another one and the website says " out of stock" via e-mail, they advised me they do NOT intend to stock or sell them anymore.............

The Scantenna is a great antenna..
Just above it I have an Enhanced Discone Scanner Antenna by the Lakeville Company.

I have had it for at least 15 years now and it's still going strong.
This antenna has always impressed me and visitors to my shack.
Sorry I don't listen enough to 225-400 to do a comparison.
