OK, before anyone says it, I know it's crap but I've had about a 30ft run of RG-58 going to a radio shack 30-176 for a couple of months now. Obviously crap cable so crao signal although it was a tad better than just the base antenna to the back of the scanner via bnc adapter. So, went out and got (actually got the wife to buy it for me which is cool cuz she hates me scanning and anything else going on with them. So her buyiing this was just SO awesome- sorry had to gloat) bought some RG-6 quad shielded cable. Next step is the f to BNC and F to pl-259 adapters and then replacing the current rg-58 and putting the antenna a bit higher on the roof. So that's the plan. Any idea what this is gonna do for me sgnalwise? I mean I know the 58 is crap but my question is just how much of a difference in the RG-6 going to make? I only stayed away from the RG-8 and Beldon because of how thick they were and the pain running them through, by the new windows would be. I'm hoping this is gonna be at minimal pretty good as far as pick up goes. Mostly vhf/uhf scanned couple of 800 systems but they are so good I get them in the clear on a rs 800 duck. I'm thinking at minimal they should be the same on the outside antenna.
