The Indoor Radio Scanner AntennaThis is a brand new, unused professionally manufactured 1/2 wave dipole scanner antenna with tunable rods that allow this antenna to be used where outside antennas are not allowed or are inconvenient. This indoor scanner antenna will provide stronger radio reception as any indoor scanner antenna. This antenna was produced for the police scanners but can also be used with any receiver that works anywhere from 25-1300 MHz as long as it has an external antenna input port. A length formula is provided so you can measure, with your tape measure or yard stick, the exact length each rod needs to be for a particular radio frequency and specific lengths for many radio services are included in a chart.
Indoor Scanner Antennas TestedTo test the indoor scanner antenna we set up an older Uniden Bearcat police radio scanner at our office in south Dallas, TX. We listened for 2 days with the stock indoor scanner antenna. The local police precinct (Southwest Division) came in fine but it appeared the precinct above us to the north (Northwest Division) had changed frequencies because we could not hear anything even with the squelch turned down so the static blasted. We set the 1/2 Wave Dipole Indoor Scanner Antenna to the general coverage length and taped it to our window just a couple of feet from where we had been testing. Immediately the Northwest Division started coming in loud and clear and we can hear every precinct in Dallas from here in extreme south Dallas. At that point we knew we had a winner. There were several examples like that with different signals around the area. After years of trying to successfully receive strong scanner radio signals with many different indoor scanner antennas FINALLY we succeeded in clear, solid reception!
Flexibility of Installation of the Indoor Scanner AntennaThis indoor scanner antenna can be used near the radio scanner or it comes with a total of 9 of cable so you can put it near a window for best reception. You can use it in a portable setting or even mount it in the attic as it will out-perform any other omnidirectional scanner antenna you can place in the attic. The only limitation would be that it should not permanently be set up outside unless under cover. Works great for an RV at a venue to receive specific types of radio signals.
Coax Cable Included with the Indoor Scanner AntennaThe cable that runs from the indoor scanner antenna to your scanning radio is 75 ohm coaxial. The indoor scanner antenna has 3 feet of permanent coax and comes with six feet of additional coax and a coupler for a total of 9'. You may change the 6' extension cable to a longer extension if you need extra coax to reach the best place for radio scanner reception. You want to get the indoor scanner antenna to an outside window or wall as high as you can get it and the run of coax is the key to doing that.
Note About the Indoor Scanner AntennaWhile this indoor scanner antenna is made for outstanding radio reception and the functionality is amazing, the radials are constructed of telescopic rods that are made of chrome-plated brass. They can break so you need to be careful with them. Obviously, this is not a particularly positive thing to point out about the antenna but you need to know you are not getting an unbreakable antenna by any means, in fact, unlike most of the antennas we sell, it will break if mis-handled. Also, metal is a signal blocker to any antenna, so if you have a metal roof or radiant barrier, or metal siding on your home you should choose an outdoor scanner radio antenna to get above the metal for improved reception.
Indoor Radio Scanner Antenna ConnectorsThe indoor scanner antenna is shipped with an RCA adapter/connector for your scanner for those scanners that have a Motorola receptacle. The beauty of using an adapter is if you change radios you merely have to replace the adapter rather than get a new scanner antenna or solder on a new connector. For most people, if your radio has a plug that sticks out and has two "bumps" on it, it is a BNC connector; if it has a hole where the antenna plug goes into the radio, you will need an RCA connector. If you have a small portable with a headphone type jack you need the 3.5mm plug. Specifications
