• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

How good is your HF reception in the apartment? I can't pick up didly in my apartment. Any advice ?


What the hell did you do to your Pro96? Both of mine are the Sliverish kind, I guess. Did they ever come with the option of a different color?

John you might want to take a look at the Antennas thread; the sticky there has a couple of links with lots - and I do mean lots of different antenna designs. While it's true that listening in an apartment means some compromises, you can still hear some very interesting stuff. I used to run a Drake R7A , Yaesu FRG7 and TenTec RX320 (sold the Drake and Yaesu due to serious financial problems, hung onto the TenTec) with various attic antennas and always managed to pick up some good stuff.

Basically it comes down to knowing when to tune, why you might hear it, and if the gods of propagation are smiling on you :D

If you're interested in more detail, post some questions on the HF forum 73s Mike
