I am stuck between 3 choices for a base antennae at the house. I was thinking about getting a discone antennae .then a spider antenna(similar to discone a couple ways) and lastly the Scantenna. In your opinion what would the best bang for the buck?
Range depends on many factors. How high you put your antenna. What kind of feedline. Terrain, weather conditions, tropospheric ducting, your location, if you are in a bowl, good luck, if on a mountain you won't need much.rafale01010 said:What range does the Omni X get before i put money on it?and how reliable?
As has been said before that depends. I have been into scanning for over 30 years and lived in several different places and every place and condition is different. If you have a GRE you can probably receive vhf-hi further than a Uniden, but it might overload on very close vhf-hi signals. If your transmitter is on a mountain several thousand feet higher than your elevation your results will be better than if the transmitter is on a building several hundred feet above your elevation.rafale01010 said:What range does the Omni X get before i put money on it?and how reliable?
