    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'm getting ready for a trip and I want to keep an eye out for Ponch and John. I was going to use my BCT-10 Beartracker but decided there's no need since my 396T will do the same thing.

So... I'm thinking about antennas and I come across the AT002 wire suction cup mount antenna that came with the Beartracker. I have no idea what band it's good at but I'm guessing it might not be too bad at 49MHz. I don't want to mount up my scanner antenna so it's this or my long GRE ducky (or a stubby).

Anyone know anything about this antenna? This sort of application is a toss up. You want to know only when the extender is close but they're also low power so you don't want to dumb down your reception too much.

Thanks!

Mike
