- Phoenix, AKA HELL
How many of you have ditched the stock antenna? I took a dim view of it right off the bat, and figured it probably was less than optimal for some of my listening, esp. the civilian air band. I had a brand new stock GRE duck antenna (a few inches longer) and threw it on and found even that was better in this band. Not sure why GRE felt a stubby antenna was in order for this unit. Aesthetics? Did they just figure it's a "800mhz world now"?
