I purchased a 6 element 800mhz yagi. I haven't yet mounted it (plan to put it in the attic). My question is this: When connecting it to my scanner I get worse reception (am trying to monitor a police agency about 20 miles northeast of my location) than i do with the rubber duck. I've double checked the connection and it seems fine. It has about 20 feet of rg58 coax. Any ideas about why the antenna doesn't seem to be working? Thanks for any ideas/suggestions.
