150-159 is VHF high btw. I'm curious - how far away is the transmit site you are trying to receive, and / or are you trying to monitor simplex mobiles or handhelds? I ask because VHF high reception for me is acceptable, except for marine band portables which are typically 1W. Disclaimer is the VHF I listen to is typically half duplex repeated systems (and the analog audio is scratchy.)I'm looking for an antenna that gives me better reception on VHF low (150-159) and also provides a proper fit for the SDS100 SMA connector.
Anyone have any recommendations?
