Hello,

I have a mobile uniden bearcat scanner, older model digital capable but without the apco25 card. I just bought a new laird tech ab450 antenna Laird Tech AB450 [AB450] - $14.95 : The Antenna Farm :: , Your Two Way Radio Source! and installed in place of my old one on my mag mount nmo on my vehicles roof. I am listening to a rebroadcast of a 800mhz public safety system at 453.05 mhz. The transmissions come in very strongly (all bars). In between the transmissions there are often these half second blips of just noise, coming in at half the strength of the actual transmissions. Ive played with the squelch and antenna tuner and cannot get it to stop.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Without more details on what system you are monitoring a re-broadcast of, I feel confident it has nothing to do with the specific antenna you are using. Most likely the noise is a function of cross-system interaction as the signal is moved from one to the other.
