Am interested, and have read good things about the scantenna (st2). I read the specs from antennacraft and the output impedance is 300ohm. I think there is a transformer included which then drops the impedance to 75ohm.

My radio - Icom R20 has a BNC 50ohm. Well i guess you know where i am going with this.

Wont the two different impedances create a loss?

Is there a way around this?

Thank you

They come supplied with a 4:1 300ohm to 75ohm balun and RG-6 coax. Good VHF/UHF but a little weak on 800. You can add length to long bottom element to drop coverage on low band. Good Luck.

The small difference between 50 ohm and 75 ohm is mostly irrelevant on an receive only antenna system.
