Default Uniden BC125AT Antenna Upgrade

Hello all. So I have a couple of Uniden BC125AT scanners and I'm looking to upgrade their antennas to get a better signal. Preferably I am looking for an antenna that will keep the scanner portable, but I'm also interested in what antennas would be good for mounting in a more permanent location. Thanks in advance!

I'm well pleased with the Diamond RH77CA.

the Rh77ca is a pretty good antenna. That's what i've used on my BC125at for many years.

Based on what I've read elsewhere that is what I was looking at already so awesome! How much of an improvement did you see with the RH77CA over the stock antenna? It only cost $26 so not like I'm breaking the bank, but is it worth the cost? I.E. is there a significant increase in signal quality?

Thanks!

It's totally worth it. The RH77CA picks up way more stuff than the factory antenna.

The Watson 801 is worthy of consideration also.

Smile Uniden BC125AT Antenna Upgrade

I am well pleased with the Watson 801. I have a bunch of them for different radios.
I don't like the Diamond for 800 trunked system.

I use the RS800 antenna. It works decently enough to get the job done but I am sure there are better, albeit more expensive, options out there.

Edit: BTW this is my only antenna out of all of my Handheld Scanners(2). The more expensive it is the more likely I am to lose it. What kind of logic is that?
