I have the pro 197,and owuld like to pick up my neighboring city,but with the stock antenna,it doesnt pick up.Maybe another 15-20 miles of pick up ??? Is that possible with a larger antenna? Id like one thats small enough for the back porch,but not an eysore for an apartment community(If that makes sense)

What neighboring city? What system/conventional frequency? Lots of neighboring cities around Macon.

This will be at an apartment complex,so something that big,or even being high up isnt an option.I can put it on my back porch,but thats about it.
