Okay so I have a BCT8 and an o.k. center-loaded telescopic antenna. I lose track of the control channels frequently. I have a 9'4" whip that I had on my car. It's a CB antenna. I kind of want to adapt/make a cable to use it as a scanner antenna. Should I bother? I'm pretty sure there's no chance of damaging the scanner since we're not transmitting, but any advice would be appreciated. I'm sure this is a common question. Thanks in advance.
