If you want better reception in the CB band, use a CB antenna. Logical, no?mikemill12 said:mobile pro 97 using the attenea that came with it thats why i was wondering if there was a different attenea that would help. yes im right off a major truck route and catn seem to pick anything up on it.
This may be true, but a CB antenna or one in the 27 MHz range is still needed. Of course, one on the roof is much better. Also, make sure that the connector at the end of the antenna lead will fit your scanner (or CB if you buy one). If not, an adapter will do.CLB said:It'd be better to buy a CB. There's usually someone selling them at a flea market pretty cheap.
Thats an oxymoron. No such thing as a good cb antenna for a scanner. They have to be shortened so much they become very inefficient. Ask any firefighter that worked with low band radios. The handheld was lucky to be able to talk out of a building back to the truck.mikemill12 said:i am within range of the truckers it is set up for am. but still nothing. ive been looking for a antenna for cbs but only thing ive been able to find is a high performance vhf antenna.
any ideas where to get a good cb attena for a handheld scanner..
