I have Pro-84 handheld scanner made by Uniden, which is similar to the BC92XLT. It came with an antenna only 4" long.
Would getting a different antenna help with reception? Would I see a noticeable difference or just a little difference?
I am looking at these 2 antennas:
20-034 Deluxe Antenna 9.45"
20-283 800 MHz Antenna 7"
The 800 MHz one says it has a 2.5db gain, but does it improve reception on frequencies below 800 MHz?
I mainly listen to 154-160 MHz and 460 MHz. Nothing on 800 MHz or any trunked systems.
Which one should I get?
Thanks for your help.
