Scanner Guys: Looking For A Better Scanner Antenna?



You can follow us on Twitter, Youtube, Facebook.

As you know I am going back to our roots of
posting police scanner related information.

Several have asked about what antennas
they should get for their police scanners.

I found a great video by the Scanner Guys,
on Youtube that will answer this question!

You can watch the video ~  CLICK HERE 

I have made a list of a few that I would recommend
based on online research and reviews .

Remember a few things:

  • Get an antenna for the band you want to listen too.
  • Make sure you have the proper connector type (Bnc, SMA, etc…)
  • Diamond discone antennas are probably best, for your general listening locally
  • If you have a HOA, reach out to them to make sure you can add an antenna
  • Remember “Height is Might”  Higher the antenna, the better the reception.
  • If your antenna is outside, properly ground it.

  • All parties involved are innocent, until proven guilty in a court of law.
  • We can only provide information that IS provided to us. 
  • As you know, the local police encrypted and are not transparent.
  • Some information may not be accurate. If there are any errors please let us know so we can try to possibly correct the errors. 
  • Several people have asked questions, and we have tried to answer as many as possible on our FAQ page
