For the last several months, there has been talk about the Radio Shack 800 antenna and the Austin Sprectre as to which one is the best. Well The local Radio Shack is no more so I thought, use the Motarola antenna, which I have lots of. Used to manage a Company that had 1500 800mhz sites all over the country. Well we closed and sold the licenses to Nextel and threw away 100'rds of radios. Using a Motorola antenna on a 396xt, with a male to male convertor beats looking for a Radio Shack. I really don't need a cell phone. You can get a dedicated 800 mhz antenna by using an old Motorola HT antenna. The adapter can be bought for $3.95 off the internet. Now the only problem is you touch the rubber on the antenna and the rubber cracks.
