All,

I have a BC147XLT scanner without an antenna. I am looking to host a feed online for the department I work for, 22 miles from home. Even with the proper antenna for the scanner I don't think it would pick up the area I'm looking to scan, but with a simple exterior scanner it would for sure. (It might with the original antenna, as they have a pretty good repeater, but I don't know).

My question - do they make an adapter of some sort to plug into the antenna slot and then use some other adapter so I could hook an external antenna to this? Any ideas on where to purchase such an item?

Thanks

The connector on that scanner is called a "Motorola Jack". I've not found any specific Motorola Female to BNC adapters, but there are solderless Motorola plugs out there (including RadioShack.com) that you could use to make your own.

UPMan - that'll work perfectly! I just wanted anything to use this for this one thing, so thanks!
