I am going to get a scanner, most likely the bct15x, and I am wondering about antennas.
this is going to be a stealth install in a convertible with a roll bar.. I am thinking for the scanner I could use a small 18in wide band in the car due to the convertible top not being much of an impedance.. this would keep it hidden. I would also like to pick up some CB when stuck in accident traffic though.. I would rather not have an outside antenna and would like as good a range as possible.. I have seen people use portable scanners in car and get fairly good CB reception but I am a novice to all of this. I have also heard that running too close to the roll bar might give me very bad SWR numbers. I just keep thinking I can make this work?
