Re: Base Antenna

I have had a Discone mounted off the side of my house for years, so far so good. Now watch, something bad will happen!

Re: Base Antenna

What are the lightning strike issues you have read? Just curious. I know a lot of people use Discones, but I wonder about the lightning strike issue that I've read about. Any other thoughts? I'm not looking to spend hundreds of dollars, but would like something with reasonable performance. Thanks, G...

Re: USB-1 Programming Cable

So I ordered the one from Amazon but triple checked my stash of various cables in the toolbox. I swear I checked them all but I found one that looked like it might work. Lo and behold, it did! Well, I now will have an extra, and the Amazon one was only $11, so a win win! Thanks everyone for your hel...

Re: USB-1 Programming Cable

I'll take your word on this, thanks. Much cheaper than the standard USB cable.

Re: USB-1 Programming Cable

Gary,

Will this work for programming my 436HP? Just want to verify before buying. That price is very cheap. Most cables are in the $22-$28 range.

USB-1 Programming Cable

Need some help, I recently tried to purchase the USB-1 programming cable that works with my BCD436HP and on two occasions I got the wrong cable. One was via eBay and the other from Ham Radio Outlet. These were described as programming cables. Both times I was sent a cable that is used for GPS and NO...

Re: Ham Radio on 143.4000 PL 110.9

It "was" used for Military Police I believe at Joint Base Cape Cod, but it may have been abandoned by the base. I monitor it quite a lot and rarely if ever do I hear comms from there, and I'm about 2 miles away.

Ham Radio on 143.4000 PL 110.9

Hearing scratchy but readable activity that definitely is NOT Camp Edwards Military chatter on this frequency. Ongoing conversations about nothing. Could possibly be FRS/GMRS? Anyone else hearing this lately? It's somewhat frequent. Definitely NOT from Joint Base, otherwise I'd be hearing it full qu...

Re: SDS200 Observations

A scanner that costs close to $700 and we are talking foil and electrical tape? No thanks, I'll pass on even considering this scanner. I am having great UHF and VHF analog reception for the most part. I am still skeptical sometimes, as I feel like it should be picking up things it may not be. (My SD...

Less is more for me. Running 3 scanners, a Uniden BCT15X, a Whistler WS1065, and a Uniden BCD436HP. 2 roof mounted antennas are a Diamond DJ130N, and a Diamond Discone.

Re: 2015 Nissan Rogue Install

Well, I don't know why I can't get a picture to upload. I select it from my computer, it looks like it loads but for some reason it does not show up? I'll keep trying. I'm not seeing any warning that it excedes size limitations so I'm at a loss.

F/S Uniden BC780XLT

I purchased this scanner recently from Scott. Works just fine but it is just surplus for me and I'm not using it as much as I thought I would, so it's up for grabs. Comes with scanner and plug. I good used condition $70, would prefer local pickup but can ship for additional $15. PM me if interested,...
