    I had a 5/8 30 inch UHF antenna mounted on my car. Its a 5.5 db gain antenna with two coils and I just noticed as I got home that the top part is missing. It must've gotten loose and detached from the top coil while I was driving. This antenna is used for recieve only, no transmiting and...

    UHF Signal Dropping

    I seem to be having an issue with incoming signals on a UHF frequency dropping and then returning. The signal is not fading, just dropping entirely for a word or two and then comes back strong only to drop again for a few words and then returning. The repeater I am connecting to is ~25 miles...

    NMO Mount with Factory Roof FM Antenna Hole

    Hi all, Yesterday, I was looking at my ugly mag-mount U/V antenna I have on my trunk (2008 Ford Fusion), and had an idea. I don't use the AM/FM or Sirius functionality in my car (my phone has all the music I'll ever need), and I've already purchased a stubby replacement antenna mast for the...

    "Best" mobile scanner antenna

    I'm looking for recommendations for a mobile scanner antenna covering 150, 450 and 800 MHz (no low band/6M needed). I currently have an Austin, but am wondering what others are using. Like most people, don't want to put holes in the vehicle. Thanks, Gregg, N2UUP
