• 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:

Yeah, there are several clones of the ScanTenna floating about. You may also note that some of them have a tendency to snap off the long elements (I think they're for low band reception) in high winds. In the homebrew section of the scanner antennas wiki, there's a fairly simple mod for this problem.

EHam has a single review on the Antenna Warehouse version of the antenna - that link is here (this link is in the 'other reviews' subsection:)

http://www.eham.net/reviews/products/37

There are many other such user reviews on that site; I wouldn't overlook the recent DPD Omni-X discussion either.

I don't know of anyone else that has written a ScanTenna review; If you come up with more reviews, please add it to the wiki for everyone's benefit.
