    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:

Hi, I need some info for a friend of mine. He lives in a rural area about 11 miles from the city & is also down in a valley. He would like to know which antenna would be best for his reception. Also he drives an 18 wheeler from Union City, Tn to Memphis & Mississippi daily & would like to pick one up on his route if anyone knows a store that stocks them. He wants to get the right outside antenna the first time & is not into 800 band at this time. Thanks for any help. Jim

For VHF-High band base unit use, I recommend the Scantenna.


Fairly inexpensive and works great on VHF-High band. Comes with everything he needs, coax, connectors, balun, etc.

Nope, I sure don't. You can click the link and can order from there for $52 shipped. You might can call them to see if they will accept a MO if you had rather pay that way.
