I live Forest Lake and have been monitoring the ARMER system with a pro-2096 for about 2 years now with only limited success. My understanding is that this scanner does not do a very good job on simulcast systems. I will be getting a new scanner early next year. Until then I need advice on the best way to set up my antenna system. I am thinking of pointing my yaggi at either ramsey or the metro tower and using this. I am currently monitoring with an omni-directional 800mhz antenna with aprox 70% good reception and 30% static or garbled reception. I am using LMR 400 cable at a 40 ft run. I also have all the current firmware updates in my scanner.
