SCANDUCKY - MOBILE ONE
This antenna does not claim to be more effective than the stock antenna your scanner came with but I was more than impressed with certain results with the Mobile One Scanducky.
SCANNER = Alinco DJ-X3
LOCATION = Springwood NSW
ANTENNA = 1 x Uniden Bearcat Stock Antenna
1 x Mobile One Scanducky
VHF = 78.4375mhz
Stock antenna gets 1 bar signal.
Scanducky gets 2 Bars signal.
AIRBAND = 126.300mhz (Richmond ATIS)
Stock antenna gets 2 bars signal
Scanducky gets 4.5 bars signal (excellent result)
UHF = 468.850mhz (Police)
Stock antenna gets 1.5 bars signal
Scanducky gets 2.5 bars signal
FM RADIO = 107.700mhz (2GO Gosford)
Stock antenna gets 4 bars signal
Scanducky gets 5 bars signal (full)
On VHF, UHF & FM Radio Scanducky was slightly better than the standard antenna giving 1-2 bars more gain.
Aviation Enthusiasts rejoice as this antenna was excellent, signal was strong and clear.....This is one Antenna to add to your scanning kit.
This antenna is slightly larger than the stock antenna at 350mm (14") and is only $40 to buy.
Best of all your money stays in Australia not overseas.
