At the antenna end you could use an F-to-PL-259 adapter assuming the selected antenna has an SO-239 connector. If the selected antenna has an F connector, like the Scanner Dipole antenna referenced in my post above, an adapter would not be needed. At the scanner end you could use an F-to-BNC adapter ( to connect to the scanner/radio.
