    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.

Hey Everyone,

I have a quick question. I dont know much about antennas so I was wondering how far away from each other should a VHF and UHF antenna if mounted on the trunk of a vehicle. I'm using a VHF radio around 155 Mhz at 50 watts and UHF radio at 25 watts.

Any ideas?

Also, dont know if it makes any difference, but the VHF is permanent mount and the UHF is a mag mount antenna. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

Don't worry too much about it, just be reasonable. Being on different bands there should be no problems, you see it on vehicles all the time especially police cars and whackermobiles. If this jerk can get away with THIS mess you can do two antennas easily.
