Well then here are a couple of good outdoor antenna choices.

First there is the Diamond D-130J,I have this antenna and it works good and its built tough.

Diamond D-130J D-130NJ Discone Antenna

Then there is the Antennacraft ST2,this antenna is not as sturdy as the Diamond discone but people say its a really good scanner antenna.

Antennacraft ST2 Scanner Antenna, Antenna Craft ST-2

Now those two antennas are just the two mainstream antennas for scanners,there are others that you may like better.

As others have asked already...

What band(s) do you want to listen to?

Base or mobile antenna?

Any considerations regarding size, polarization, stealth, mounting limitations, coax feedline run length, etc?
