I also love to set at home on those cold winter days when the
roads are ice and snow covered and listen to My police
scanner. I have an old handheld scanner that covers
Police,Weather,Air,CB,Fm,and TV1. The one thing I don't like
about it is that it is the old manuel set kind which means you
have to set it on the frequency yourself and you can only listen
to one frequency at a time. I used to run it on an old "Hustler"
antenna but now I just use the rubber ducky antenna. My
parents own a "Bearcat" 144XL 16 channel 10 band scanner. It
is a base. We run it on our old TV antenna. Tv antennas are
great for scanner antennas. Neither of these are very fance rigs but
they get the job done. I hope to buy a nice 300 or 400 channel
scanner in the future.
