Jack, I'm located in the City of Toledo around St. Anne's Hospital.
What I've tried to do is to 'aim' it to get only one tower, like Station 18, or Flower Hospital temporarily using the cell antenna. I do plan on running coax to the little chunk of square metal at the focal point of the 'dish', but also realize potential cable losses at 850MHz will become an issue.

I didn't know if the new Uniden Home Patrols have solved the simulcast issues or if you need a 'true-blue Motorola' radio to ever get 90% reception that you want? Can you even buy a Moto radio (like you could the Maxtrac on the old system) and get it programmed to scan your talkgroups of interest?
