Thanks... Looks very informative.. One of my larsons is their and tested going to read up on it now... I may move my NMO5E825B to the back yard from the car...prcguy said:Check out this guy’s site. http://www.northwestradio.com/interceptnw/antennas.htm
He tested gobs of mobile antennas and there is one particular 800 NMO style that seems to stand out. It’s a great site in general for those who like to play with commercial antennas for monitor purposes.
Chrome69 said:for the car its great, but like i said it needs 18 inches around it of metal to work good or so i have been told...
Does the metal need to be magnetic? I have a huge stainless steel desk that I could put an antenna on, but since it's good stainless, it isn't magnetic.prcguy said:An 800MHz antenna should be fine in the middle of a 6” disk of metal for a ground plane. 18” around (36” dia.) is good down to VHF hi band.
