Sorry Mods if I have post this in the wrong thread or subject, but its my first post on this Forum.

I have a Uniden Bearcat BC95XLT and I would like too attach a adaptar Coaxial Cable Female to BNC Male to extend the range of my Uniden Bearcat. Is that Possible





The Antenna that I want to connect my Uniden Bearcat too is an TERK Antenna.
Terk : Indoor TV Antennas : HDTVA

Thanks for any help and assistance!

Yes, exactly correct connector. And yes TV antennas can make very good scanner antennas. You should tilt the Terk antenna 90 degrees to make it vertically polarized... Unlike TV reception which orients the antenna horizontally. It won't sit on the stand very well but it will receive better.

Where's the pic? hehehe

And I see all kinds of mag mounts with PL-259, BNC and other connectors for when you want to chase Railroad out through the desert :p I bought a TRC-200 handheld years ago and the first thing I did is go get the Antenna Specialists Mag Mount Scanner Antenna. Much better than using the rubber ducky in the car.
