    Question on RHWA-450-sbm antenna

    I just received the RHWA-450 -SBM Scanner Antenna from Arcadian. I'm pretty sure its helping my UHF and VHF but concerned that the BNC connection doesn't fully lock on my TRX-1. Seems there is a bump that prevents the antenna from fully locking onto the Whistler. Should that be a concern?

    Amazon won't deliver antennas to CA

    This morning I tried buying different scanner antennas to my apartment in CA. I just can't believe it. The message kept coming up can't deliver to your location. Has something to do I think with warranty issues. I had to order an antenna from somewhere else.

    Radiation

    I'm surprised no one has asked this yet, so I guess I am the first. Does anyone know if scanners produce harmful radiation if you're around them a lot?

    430-470Mhz antenna on 403-470 ht 750?

    I'm not radio savy so this might be a dumb question. Can I use a 430-470Mhz UHF antenna on my UHF ht 750 that's 403-470MHz without harming it? Or should I just buy a 403-470MHz antenna?

    Dipole feed line length question

    I am building a dipole antenna. I know that the feedline needs to be approximately 1/2 wavelength in length (or factors there of) for best SWR. However, there is one item of confusion. I am making an RF choke by coiling the feedline at the base of the antenna. Do I include the length of coax in...

    Antenna Strength

    This is probably an obvious to most that are experienced with scanning, but will a mobile/portable antenna that is designed for a specific band ALWAYS perform better in that band than one that is designed for multiple/all bands?
