Driving down some dirt road in VT like a maniac
Hello all, I've been browsing this forum for a little bit now and decided to create an account and introduce myself. Its about time I de-lurk myself.

I'm currently using a Realistic PRO-2028 scanner, nothing too special but something that does the job good enough to track local stuff. I currently have the stock junk antenna which dosn't do any good for my reception. When I first got the scanner it came with an external antenna that got really good reception, but when I moved airport security actualy removed the antenna from the scanner (it was checked in, not carry on) and I've been stuck using the junk antenna ever since.

I have an unused telephone pole in my back yard that I would like to stick an antenna on for the scanner, something to get me better reception. I'm pretty high up in the town, but at teh same time there is a small mountian behind me. I'd like to put a decent but fairly cheap antenna on the pole in the future.

I live in caledonia/essex county and frequently listen to NH frequencies also. I have a list that I made up fairly quickly of all the frequencies that I could find for my general area. Thought it might help to post them for anyone else in this area. Also might help in getting me a decent antenna for that pole :)
