Thanks for flipping the pic. I couldn't do it from my phone lol. I am using a small magnet mount antenna from scannermaster and I think it is a scan force antenna. Looks like a cell phone antenna and it performs well. I am picking up farther and more stuff with the Home Patrol
OK. Yeah, that's probably the Spectrum Force. I had one of those when I first put a scanner back in my vehicle. I returned it because of all kinds of noise and interference, but it turned out the be the scanner. I'm now using a Hustler MOR on a Comet lip mount and like the performance. Nice setup.
How could I use amplified battery powered computer speakers with this unit? I tried plugging them into headphones jack but got low volume. Is there an adapter I need? I really don't want to hardwire anything? Any other suggestions?
scannerman, do a search of the archives and you will find a number of threads about using an external speaker. I would not use computer speakers. Uniden makes an amplified speaker that would work...the BC23A. Here's a thread about it.
I have been thinking about one myself to combat road noise. I use mine almost exclusively in my vehicle. I generally run my volume three clicks down from max (12). I would run it one more, but I'm superstitious. LOL! I'm not a fan of running speaker volume full. I don't think it's good for the speaker. I know there are other powered speakers out there as well.
