So I found out the hard way that having a basement apartment is NOT at all ideal for scanning in my area. All of the antennas I have tried are hit or miss at best. To be completely honest, the stock antenna that I am using on both of my Uniden 996P2's has been the "best" for overall reception. The only issue is that from time to time I have to adjust the antenna and now I've noticed they have loosened. I've tried using the smallest of screw drivers to try to fix this tension issue to no avail. Any suggestions or am I better off just buying new ones?
