My scanner antenna was on my tower about 20 feet up and we had a storm last tuesday and a tree limb hit it and broke it, Broke the center out of it..So NOW, I am going to have to get a replacement..I am wanting to listen within a 40-50 mile radius of my location. My other one was an older one and would not pull this task off...My AM CB antenna was doing a better job than my scanner antenna was...Therefore I am looking to purchase a new scanner antenna that will pick up a max range preferbly 30 miles at the LEAST...Are there any that will acomplish this task? Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm open for ideas..What about cable? What should I use? I'm currently using cable from Radio Shack, Thin Stuff.. Ideas Anyone?
