    Homemade antennas

    I was reading something about a homemade antenna from some other forum. Anyway the guy made this antenna that he was able to listen to frequncies from atleast 500 miles away with a antenna he made. Does anybody know how to make an antenna such as this one. I have the radioshack pro-197 scanner too.
