• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Maximum or minimum?
Max...as high as you can get it, using the best coax you can afford. Minimum...well it depends on what freqs you wanna hear. The higher the freq, the more line of soght it is, so you kinda need to 'see' your target with your antenna. Not quite, but a good rule of thumb. This all depends on you nearby terrain, etc.

Not much help I know, but there is no magic bullet.

Depends on local regulations.
In general 200 feet needs lighting and registration.
Watch Airport approach paths.
