I got an adapter that does this, is this a good idea and will it work any better than my telescoping antenna that came with my scanner?
One thing to learn about Rat Shack these days is that most of their employees don't know a capacitor from a connector. Sure it will work, might not work as well as an actual scanner antenna depending what band you are listening to but it will work. Ran an old CB antenna on my mobile scanner for years. Worked great as most of what I listened to was low bandChev_am said:Thanks, The radio Shack guys said that it would take away 4 DB but it seems to be working.
