Question about Radio Communications
Are there any high powered antennas that will work with this scanner? I live in a semi-remote area and would like to pick up some municipal signals. Thanks.
Height and placement of the antenna determines range. Also, check to see you have the antenna perpendicular to the ground (straight up), and place the antenna where it has 19" clear around it. (not up against a wall or other obstruction)
Placing the existing antenna higher, or replacing it with an external antenna would give you more range. A simple test before purchasing a new connector, coax and antenna for the scanner, would be to place the scanner where you think you would place an antenna and see if it gives you the range you desire.
External antennas are available from most any radio shop. (They would need to know what type of connector you need to connect the coax to the back of the unit.)
