I just getting into scanning and really need a good antenna to pick up more frequencies. I have a Uniden BCD996T (my husband bought it a few years back and doesn't use it anymore) and I use it, for now, to scan for police, fire and weather info. I'm just starting to read the manual and trying to program this scanner. I live on 4 acres with nothing around us to block signals. I pick up police frequencies from Metro Detroit (about 40 miles away) with the standard antenna supplied by Uniden. We have an antenna pole up already for our T.V. antenna and wifi box but not much else will fit -- also, not sure if any of the signals with interfere with each other. So please, scanner gods, help.
