      Thanks Vince, but can you see the pickle I'm in? - LOL -   I have one person saying they're tired of seeing my questions about antennas on this list, one who suggested to check out an antenna list (which I took as a hint), but several others who have told me both publicly and privately to go ahead and have at it.  The lists on Yahoo dedicated to antennas seem pretty dead though from what I can decipher.  I do not want to cause any problems or make any enemies here or, heaven forbid, start a flame war - LOL, especially being new on this list, however I'm still quite curious and interested in this subject and have indeed learned a lot from the people on this list, so I don't know what to do.... Lately when I see a post I have just been replying to them privately so it won't go to the list.  There could be silent others out there who don't want to see posts about antennas, but then again, there could be many more who want to see them.  I'm of the
      opinion myself though that others can learn from these posts even if my own situation doesn't apply specifically to their situation at this point in time.  There still may be something they can learn from it.  And I've always thought that's the true spirit of the internet.   I'm sorry if my questions bother anyone.  Eventually though I'm gonna have to make a decision about what to get and this won't even be an issue anymore.  Then you'll have to put up with my beginner questions with the 396XT.  But thanks for your post :)

      Yes, Preston......you are fine sharing your questions on this email list
      and in fact, that is what it is here for.  It is what makes this email
      list work;  people sharing ideas. 

      Aside from the radio, the antenna and feed cable are the most important
      things to monitoring radio signals.  So the more you know about
      antennas, the better experience you will have with your radio.

      Best of luck to you.

      > Well Ray I have to take some responsibility for this.  I am just a
      beginner in this hobby and don't know anything about antennas, very
      little about scanners, and nothing about the 396XT, so I'm sorry if this
      has gotten too off topic.  If I have further questions I'll try to write
      to people privately.  I have done that already a few times to cut down
      on the number of, say, "not-as-on-topic" posts, but I have suddenly
      become very interested in all this and putting up a decent antenna and
      really don't know what I'm doing at all so I just wanted to try to get
      as much info as possible.  In any event, I apologize for how the subject
      went on too much for some othersin the group.

      antennas already or we wouldn't be listening.
