• 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:

I wouldn't trade my Scantenna for no antenna. I think it is a great antenna. But it is then only outdoor antenna I have ever used so I can't compare it to anything else.

MA,
I started out with a Discone Antenna and it worked "OK" and then I got a beam it worked "good" but the beam was a pain in the $$$. It diden't work much better directional then omnidirectional and then I got a scantenna and it was "better" and then I got Nil-Jon and for me it works "best" BUT not much better then the scantenna @ $40. "with coax". The Nil-Jon @ $150. with coax and connectors. Until i heare of something better around $50. bucks The scantenna is all I will buy.
