    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:

I'm looking to purchase a new antenna for my Pro-97. I mostly listen to 155 and 500mhz. I was thinking about the 15" long RH77CA. Anyone have experience with this antenna? Will it work with those ranges. I'm tired of the static with my rubber ducky.

The RH77CA will do well for your 155mhz. I'm using the very similar RH771 on my BR330T. It's cut for 2m (approx 144-148mhz) & 440mhz. Haven't tried anything near 500mhz, but Vhf -high (150-160mhz) is excellent.
