Finally had the time to sit down with my scanner and program Favorites with the software. I wanted to Listen to the Philadelphia police, and nothing. It has been a while since I tried. Too far from Williamstown for my Comet Discone antenna. I bought a Wilson 301111 and put it up verticle at 340 deg. for the 25 or so Air miles. and covers all of Philadelphia. I still receive everything in Southern New Jersey too. no need for the discone. and it was 1/2 the price.
