Hi Wes, & welcomeHi, Im a newbie to this hobby and I picked up a uniden bct8 scanner. I like just east of dallas in mesquite tx. Im wondering whats the best broad range antena for this area?...also where I can pick one up..
Sure.i bought a SCANTENNA ST-2 off ebay....mesquite would be nice also dallas to...but as far as mounting this thing....i have a tv antenna on my roof already is it possible to extend the mast...and hang the scanner atenna on top?
I'd say you're probably right.I'm not a Uniden guy, but nasty noises sound like you might be pausing on control channels. Are you sure you have the frequencies programmed as the proper trunking types?
