I've been suggesting that to Dick, W3BMA for several years now. The PSR and Radio Shack scanners generally get wasted there too without the ATT on.

Good luck and it will be interesting to see your results; take along a standard paper clip as a third antenna option for that area.
I like paperclip Idea as my third comparison antenna .....
