    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 gunna retire my Radio Shack mag mount and I need a NMO mount antenna for my Pro 2055. I had a CB antenna mounted on the roof when I got the van and took it off when I got my scanner. I have the cable thru the hole and sealed with silicone, with the scanner mounted on the headliner with the bracket.

I plan on mounting my 2055 in the DIN sleeve where the ashtray/cigarette lighter was in the dogbox cover. The hole for the antenna is drilled aft of the dome light and I'll need to route the cable down the A pillar on the passenger side over to the center of the dashboard. Looks as if I'll need a 90° connector for the antenna and 10 - 15 ft of cable and then a 90° BNC connector.

I want a good performer on VHF Hi, Air/MilAir bands and 800 too. Also I need a relatively short or a very flexible unit for clearance thru a few low underpasses I have to pass under (my mag mount just lays over & I hafta flip it back up).

I know that's asking alot.......is it possible?
