Just came in today so I gave it a test run. I installed it on my mag mount that I was previously using with a dedicated 800 mhz antenna. But I really wanted to be able to monitor vhf and uhf as well. Got an extra Uniden BCD996P2 scanner that I take out sometimes. So I tested out the antenna monitoring the local P25 simulcast system, as well as some conventional business freqs, the local state prison LTR system, some conventional PD & FD, and the Motorola Mass State Police trunked system. I first drove up to the high spot in town, then down to the area near airport, and around Warwick and Cranston. I was surprised how good this small antenna picked up all bands very well. I could hear the security at the Providence Veterans hospital full scale and I was way south of the hospital. I will do more tests in other directions. The best area to receive even tho the elevation is low, is the areas surrounding the state airport. I could pick up everything clearly there. The real high spots dont seem to matter too much with P25. All in all I am loving this little antenna. Definitely worth the money and while a dedicated 800 mhz antenna was working great on P25, this Larsen is also impressive. The Larsen 150/450/800 is the antenna next to the tall whip on rooftop of car.
