    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:

Hey Guys,
Anyone use the Austin Condor Multiband Portable Antenna ? I'm probably going to buy one for my Pro-97 & was curious how other users faired out with it.

Thanks...
It does work very well as an all band scanner antenna. However, it's 13" long and kind of fat, so it may look kind of strange on a scanner when worn on your belt or hand carried. This may or may not be an issue with you.

Thanks for the info. As far as look and what not thats not an issue, it will only be in my car or on my desktop. So from what I gather this antenna will improve my reception over my original RS stock antenna ?

Yes, it will improve reception over the RS stock antenna. Another handheld antenna you may want to consider is the Diamond RH771.
