• 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:

My little listening post.

Could you spare any RF connectors in your multi-unit adaptor series?

wow!

otherwise, looks like you can do some fine monitoring there, where does that RG58 run to?

Nice radios.

It looks like an SMA to BNC, then a BNC to a PL259 connector. Do you experience weaker signals compared to your base scanner?

It's an SMA to BNC, then BNC Male to Male, then RG8x. It is connected to a Discone antenna outside. I have hooked the Pro-96 to it .. but not the desktop because the desktop seems to overload too easily. Moreso than the Pro-96. I have two FM transmitter towers nearby so I just use the 330t with the discone since it doesn't seem to have overload issues.

As for the flower, those are for my wife. She just gave birth to our beautiful daughter on Aug. 26th :D

Dude seriously, put an SMA on the end of that coax! :D

Or else replace the PL259 with a BNC. Way too much stress on that poor 330's SMA connector :)

I speak from experience here.
