Although you are not using the antenna for television, just be aware that there really is no such thing as an "hd antenna." These words are sometimes added to a product as an advertising gimmick. Any decent TV antenna will work fine for HD, HD-widescreen, or standard definition TV.

You don't say what you are scanning, but I'll assume you are scanning an 800MHz system only. If you are scanning VHF lo/high and UHF it's no wonder it isn't working since it is rated for 800MHz only.

I have the same R/S 800MHz and it works great for me. Is distance and issue in your case, as that can affect performance as well. Also, try moving the scanner to a different location, might work too.

Good luck and happy listening!
