I apologize if this should have been posted in the "antenna" section; it looked like that was mostly people building antennas. Let me know if it needs to be moved.


Has anyone tried one of these "Professional Center Load" scanner antennas?

PROFESSIONAL CENTER LOAD SCANNER ANTENNA 800-900 MHZ - eBay (item 250583775665 end time Mar-21-10 12:29:46 PDT)

The guy has good feedback, and the price is pretty good.. I'm a little curious how long the antenna is though, and really curious how well it works, of course.

I've gotten a couple of antennas from that seller and both have worked great. I don't have the one you question though.

PRO BASE SCANNER ANTENNA ON THE BACK 800-900 MHZ - eBay (item 260549034087 end time Mar-07-10 17:07:36 PST)

SCANNER ANTENNA HAM ANTENNA PRO TUNED 800-900 MHZ - eBay (item 260555845846 end time Mar-20-10 17:32:14 PDT)

My favorite is the one with the right angle and it works great.
Have you ever used the radio shack 800mhz antenna? If so, how do those compare?

I went ahead and ordered the antenna. For $17 shipped it's hard to pass up.. I emailed the seller and he said the loaded coil one was the best performer. It's probably the longest too.. I'm gonna try to use it on the back of my 898t, So I'm not too concerned with the length.

I have moved this to the antenna forum. The antenna forum is for anything related to antennas:).

Thanks!
