Look at the pictures very carefully, they both have adapters, the description may or may not be clear on this.I appreciate the response. The two the ebay seller has one with sma the other with the bnc. Not sure if he uses an adapter but he markets these antennas for both the 536 and 436.
If using a magnetic mount for home don't I have to make some type of ground plane for it?As for a GPS, suggest you search around ebay for a Garmin GPS18, make SURE you find a Serial unit as there are a lot of Garmin GPS18 USB units around.
You should be able to get one for under $40 if you shop around.
Slightly cleaner than the Uniden setup.
As for the BNC T and using 2 antenna, that works but sometimes will also kill certain frequency bands with null
Since you have a hand held scanner, if using it at home, inside, I would suggest a magnet mount antenna that you can place somewhere near a window and then just hook the cable up to the scanner. This will not stress the SMA connector on the radio like the larger antenna or 2 antennas on a BNC T adapter.
Sometimes I just take an alligator clip jumper or 2 and connect then to the shield/ground side of the scanner or antenna and see what happens and/or connect it to something metal and see if it changes anything. Sometimes I have even had luck with a alligator jumper on the extended center portion of a whip antenna. Sometimes having a metal filing cabinet or a metal cookie sheet will help and make a difference.If using a magnetic mount for home don't I have to make some type of ground plane for it?
