Re: SDS100?

That's odd. I notice very little difference between the 436
and 100. There is some, but it's not as if the 100 is useless.

In testing the difference is about 3 to 6 dB difference at worst.

Re: Antenna for my minivan

Rick NK7I
 

NOT true.  You're reducing the efficiency of the receiving antenna if it has no ground plane (counterpoise).  It won't be a 50 ohm termination, therefor it has less signal at the receiver caused by that mismatch (SWR mismatch presents loss in BOTH directions, hearing AND transmitting).

Without the counterpoise, it can make a several dB loss difference, why throw that away?  Even adding one counterpoise element can bring most of that back (mostly in that direction). The mobile environment is already compromised enough with noise (from in, around the vehicle, from many sources), take advantage of what you can hear, efficiently.

If you're listening to a city agency within that city, you can (likely) afford the loss of efficiency, but for the rest of what most folks want to hear, it matters because you're not next to a transmitter.

What works for TX, generally works for RX so treat any antenna as a TX antenna; match it properly (extreme low bands like 160/80M are exceptions because you need to reduce the noise floor further than a TX antenna allows).

To prove this to yourself, take a wire 3" long as your antenna and try to hear something weak in the VHF range and note the signal strengths (a gross antenna mismatch).  Then put an antenna on with the proper cut and counterpoise for the same frequency; note the signal strengths again and you'll see a large difference; the difference is the mismatch on the poor antenna.

To answer the OP, on my mobile scanner, I use a triband (150/450/800) 'spike' antenna on the metal roof.  While it has no gain on any band, it's more than adequate since I don't listen to VHF low anymore.  At home I use a 2M (146 MHz) antenna which is also resonant at 450 MHz which gives me two scanner bands (trivial mismatch) and the 700 MHz system is loud enough I can afford the loss (comes in great from 20 miles away).

The details, matter.

I have used one of the tri band Larsen NMO mount (via a NMO 3/4" hole mount) for years for scanning and it is fantastic.  Very happy with its quality and performance.

I use a PulseLarsen NMO150/450/800 and an NMO mag mount from Ham Radio Outlet ( www.hamradio.com ). It stands about 17 inches tall. It is tuned very wide band for high VHF, UHF and 800 MHz reception. Not recommended for ham radio use. If too tall there is / was a 10 inch tall mag mount for 2m / 440 ham use that works well but I can't seem to mind it at the HRO site today.  ;(
