Hey All I've been using my Pro-97 with a Diamond RH77CA antenna for a long while now and it's a great setup for using outdoors. But I'm looking at either purchasing an external antenna or possibly making one myself. I'm planning on mounting it on the roof of my 2 story house. Right now I'm mostly listening to PD, Fire Etc. But I would like to hear it all from 25mhz all the way up. I have read a lot of posts saying I could build one myself but it would only be good for a specific freq. range and if I want to listen to it all I would be better off buying one. OK Ladies & Gents Which way should I go? I like the Idea of mfg. one myself but not if it won't do everything I want it to. And if I have to buy one any suggestions as to which one I should look at would be and will be greatly appreciated. Thanks All for this wonderful forum!
