Two Pro-2052s, on "list scan" to monitor the local EDACS system site (100 yards from my house), with horizontal stubby antennas, to feed both my feeds.

This should be a good thread. I've always been interested in this.

Douglas County Law split feed with Pro-197 on the right monitoring Douglas County SO and Castle Rock PD and a Pro-2096 on the left side monitoring Parker PD and Lone Tree PD all are on a Diamond discone antenna that is in the attic of the home. I sit high on a hill and am able to monitor a Pro-106 from Boulder to Colorado Springs.

Pro 96 for one feed, Pro-2096 for the other. Almost everyone I want to monitor out here is on a P25 system.
Pro 106 in the car.

A Pro-95 standing in for an ill Pro-2053, the discone was damaged by recent winds, using homebrew GP (SO-239 and some 12ga wire) that for now is working just fine.
