I have a maxrad 800mhz mounted 40 feet and it picks up 800 systems as far as 60 miles away,now I have site 203 which is mansfield ohio tower in marcs programmed in my 2096 and i pick up the state prison in manfield on site 203 just fine but I cant pick up osp post 70 which is mansfield post at all.Now I hook up my scantenna at 40 feet up and pick up post 70 mansfield site 203 just fine but lose alot of other 800 systems.Can anyone give me a little light on this subject please.Thank you.

800 systems

The scantenna is A good all-around antenna but it is weekest in the 800mhz range. I had the same problem. I bought A Nil-Jon and it solved the problem.:lol:

There is a funny looking 800 antenna that goes onto a hand held I forgot the name but how can that 800 antenna be better than a antenna that is high in the sky and a larger antenna. I know 800 freq. doesn't require a long antenna.

Are you only using the primary CC? That is all you need to use and if you hear the prison on the primary CC then you should hear the OSP.

There are some confusions regarding that case, and you might as well review some items featured on the Maxrad Mobile Radio Antenna Line Catalog by Maxrad to be enlightened.

I see the concealed mounted glass patch are these any better than a rubber duck for general use? I don't see any pricing on these two units that mount a patch on interior auto glass.
