the window picture are my antennas 2 radio shack mag mounts , a Hustler 2 meter mag and a Stealth j-pole type custom built IT works well and i can transmit to local and distant (OK,KS,AR) repeaters
The power supply is a Ten-Tec model 252

It's not a metal window , it's that plastic type , as far as the diagonal it is a 300 mhz tv braid with a capacitor and tuned to 144 to 159 mhz , it was custom made by Bill Frank AC0JK

Man, do I ever know how that works. My wife just about went nuts when I bought a PRO-96 (used, but still...) a couple of weeks ago; my 5th scanner (and 8th radio over all) since this past December. Take her out to the most expensive restaurant in town. That should help a little bit LOL. :)
