- Dec 27, 2011When you say double discone are you meaning one or two antenna's? You should
use just ONE or they work against each other. It's deffinately NOT a scanner
issue though. Discones are great antennas and I have one up that lets me
hear Louisville Ky VHF high 110 miles away year round.

I write here because I am quite disappointed with my 396XT handheld.
I use it with a Nagoya NA-771 antenna and the general perfomance it is
quite good. Last week I set up a double discone antenna on the roof
together a top low loss Ecoflex cable, just to say that the perfomance
let much to be desired. I can hear much stuff with the Nagoya.
Yes, the attenuator is off and I have checked all the connectors, wire,
installation and everything is fine.
Now I regret selling my beloved AOR AR5000 in order to buy this Uniden.
Anybody has this problem? Would it be better to sell it and buying a
Realistic pro 2006 ?
Thank you and best wishes !
