If it's a TNC connector as they state then it's for mobile or cell phone use. Scanners don't use TNC connections but BNC, PL259, or Motorola.is anyone familiar with this antenna?
well, Im good with those pie plate set ups, heck Ive even moved on up to large lasagna pans
well I have an insulated 14" pizza pan thats terrible for pizza, however, since its insulated, it could make a better ground plane with the added shielding?Lasagna is layered and lossy to RF. Thin crust pizza makes a better ground plane but avoid those little 8" personal size versions unless you only do 800MHz. Antennas and food, ummm.
Yeah, if it has something to do with cellphones or iPods, you can usually count on Rat Shack to have it. I use a cellphone antenna for scanning in my wifes car, and I got the TNC adaptor from Rat Shack.nevermind, I see RS has one, Ill pick one up this week to see if this dog will hunt
good deal, Im actually wanting to start drilling some holes in the ol crown vic, that big trunk lid would make for a nice ground planeLasagna is layered and lossy to RF.

Why don't you just buy a BNC connector and install it on the antenna? And yes..they do make BNC to TNC adapters.well I got this antenna today and its a beauty, with a TNC connector, looks for all purposes to definitely be a cell phone antenna, does anyone make a TNC to BNC adapter? hate to see such a pretty antenna go to waste
That's what he already said he's doing.Why don't you just buy a BNC connector and install it on the antenna?
There's not even a price on that page. Regardless, they're only around $5 bucks at Rat Shack. Even I don't call that "alot of money".And yes..they do make BNC to TNC adapters.
But that's alot of money.
