FS: Grove Scanner Beam Antenna

#1 Post by trp » 11 Aug 2019 02:47

Up for sale is a Grove Scanner Beam Antenna (Grove Enterprises order #ANT1B) that is used but in very good condition. This base station antenna (intended for outdoor or attic mounting) includes all of the original mounting hardware, offset pipe and balun transformer that came with the antenna. FYI this antenna is no longer available for sale brand-new as Grove Enterprises is out-of-business. Following is the actual verbatim description of the Scanner Beam Antenna from the Grove catalog along with the actual catalog picture below:

"6-9 dB gain over other scanner antennas!

Our world-renowned Scanner Beam provides unexcelled 30-50 MHz low band reception, 108-136 MHz aircraft, 136-174 MHz high band, 225-400 MHz military aircraft and satellites, 406-512 MHz UHF, and 806-960 MHz microwave mobile.

HAMS NOTE-can be used for transmitting up to 25 watts on 144, 220 and 420 MHz bands. 50/75 ohms nominal impedance.

May be used with inexpensive TV antenna rotator for boresight accuracy, or fixed in one direction as required for those elusive, distant stations. Local signals still come in loud and clear from all directions.

Balun transformer, offset pipe and all mounting hardware included (requires TV type F connector on your coax). Approximate size 6’H x 4’L."


The original antenna did not include any coax but for those reading this ad on Scan New England I will also include (at no additional charge) 50 feet of brand-new RG-6 coax with F connectors attached on both ends. Local pickup will be in Fall River, MA and the price is $50. Please PM me with any questions, if you would like pictures or would like to purchase.

I had an inquiry asking if I would be willing to sell the Grove Scanner Beam Antenna without the included coax for a lower price. The answer is yes.

If you don't need or want the 50 feet of brand-new RG-6 coax (with F connectors attached on both ends) that I included in my original package listing above, you can purchase the antenna alone for $40. As stated, the antenna is in very good/excellent condition.

Local pickup will be in Fall River, MA. PM me with any questions or if you would like to purchase.
