Any ideas? I am trying to pull in my state police post but the nearest to me is 24 miles away on stock antenna I may get one bar with slot of annoying digital noise to go with it or nothing at all. The RS 800mhz antenna i can get maybe two bars but still I can tell I am missing transmissions. Outdoor antenna is not an option so are there is options for me?

More info would be helpful...

1. Where are you? Where is the transmitting site located?

2. What frequency are you listening on?

3. What kind of geography is between you and the transmitter site?

4. Are you using a base/mobile or portable scanner?

For 460MHz, one of the better handheld antenna options is the Diamond RH77CA. It's definitely better than any dedicated 800MHz antenna.

But depending on the geography between you and the tower, it's possible no indoor antenna will give satisfactory performance.
