If that reflector is a true parabolic then the focus point will be the same regardless of frequency, Tom. But you are right in that the RS 800 rubber duck is not going to be the best antenna to use with it.

John, you don't say where you are located. But if you are outside of Lucas county then that antenna isn't going to help you. The beam width will be pretty narrow but the signal strength from one or more towers is going to over ride each other and confuse your scanner. You might be better off to reduce your antenna efficiency to the point where you only receive one tower. I live in Delta and I can't get a good copy on that system either.
