• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

Which radioshack antenna gets better reception? The smaller one, or the discone one. (also transmits and is more $). I know, probably a dumb question, just wondering if I should spend the extra money if there is really that much of a difference.

Thanks

Antenna depends on scanner. On my big BC-780's I use Channel Masters. On all others like pro-series I use a tri-band. Discones are actually an aircraft antenna that RS sells for a scanner antenna. Some PRO series overload with big antennas. I would read some of the old post.
