Hey all, I live in Hampstead, NC (Pender County) and I seem to be getting some bad signal on some of the VIPER frequencies for Pender Fire & EMS. I am thinking that it may just be a signal issue and that I may need to look at getting a different antenna. I have no issues with receiving signal from neighboring New Hanover County but they may have a stronger tower. Does anyone have any suggestions as to an affordable upgrade to the stock antenna that comes with the PRO-197. I only need to receive the trunked Motorola II frequency ranges. Thanks so much for your help!
