Looking for a scanner antenna for your house, but you don't work for NASA or teach physics at MIT? Look no further—this antenna package is for you. While there are no shortage of antenna options (Scanner Antenna Buyer’s Guide ) on the market as well as endless ways to set up your antenna, this package has everything you need to successfully complete an outdoor scanner antenna installation:

› Antenna
› Coax Cable (50' with BNC male on both ends)
› Mast (optional add on)
› Grounding Kit (optional add on)

Every home antenna installation is unique, so we left some items optional. We break down each option below.


 

Police Scanner Antenna

A wideband, omni directional antenna allows you to monitor everything possible from all directions. The ProComm SP800/50BN is the best out-of-home (OOH) on the market. We used to offer several OOH antennas, but the ProComm SP800/50BN is the best value, so we cut out all other options. Some scanner antennas cost upwards of $300, but the gains are marginal at best. The ProComm SP800/50BN antenna is incredibly easy to assemble (no tools needed), inexpensive, durable, can go on any roof/attic/closet installation and small. Basically, you can use anywhere and have it set up in about 10 minutes. It's awesome, we're sure you'll love it. Scroll down to the 'compare' tab to see technical specs.



 

Coax Cable

Package includes 50' of RG58 coax with BNC male connectors on each end; add additional coax if needed. Recommended coax length usage for reference:

50 feet - 1 story home with pitched roof or 2 story with flat roof
100 feet - 2 story home with pitched roof or 3 story with flat roof

For a detailed explanation of coaxial cable (coax) here is the Wikipedia page.

RG58 is an affordable coax cable for police scanner antenna installations. Coated with a 90% rated outer layer, RG58 reduces interference & leakage. Both ends terminate with BNC male which fits on any scanner or scanner antenna. It's coax, we recommend not overthinking this aspect. If 50' is not enough when you get an antenna, you can always pick one up at local hardware store.


 

Mast

We ofter 2 mast types, a pole and a J-mount. The mast required depends on how/where you'll install your antenna. Already have a mast on your roof? We highly recommend using what you have if possible.

Grounding Kit

Our police scanner antenna grounding kit provides you with everything needed to ground your antenna with zero technical know-how in about 15 minutes.  Basically, you need to put 2 clamps on with a wrench and push one 3-foot stake in the ground. Kit comes with 3 stakes, but only one needs to be used. No equipment or electrical know-how required. Works with any outdoor antenna including all scanner antennas we sell. This is a safety item that should be used on all outdoor antennas. Protects against electrical shorts and lighting strikes. The antenna grounding kit provides a lower path to a safe discharge point. Also grounding the antenna will "drain off" electrical noise, leaving a cleaner signal. Grounding Kit includes:

› 1/2" ground clamps - 3 included
› 3' 1/2" D galvanized grounding rods - 3 included
› 50' spool of 12.5 gauge aluminized steel ground wire - 1 included

Antenna grounding rules & laws vary greatly depending on the state/city you live in and your homeowners insurance policy, but this kit will have you covered. Some states do not require antenna grounding, but you're putting a metal rod on your home which will act as a lightening magnet—we recommend springing a few extra bucks to ground your antenna.

FAQ

How much will this increase what I can hear?

Varies greatly based on several factors like topography, antenna location and cable length but a good rule of thumb is about 50% increase. Digital police scanners get about 30 miles of range so an outdoor antenna would bring this to 45 miles. Again, there are a lot of factors that play into reception but this is a good rule of thumb.


Can I install this on my own?

You should be able to. We give you everything needed; as long as you have very basic tools like a hammer, screwdriver and a ladder you should be sound as a pound.


Can you help me if I can't figure it out?

Absolutely - this is what we're here for.

Amateur radio enthusiast, mostly a hack, for 40 years. Never took the next step until I set myself up with your scanner antenna and accessories and grounding kit. Straight up. Outstanding difference.

Was having trouble listening to my scanner in my house. Got this kit and it works perfectly. I thought it would be harder to install, but it really was only a couple bolts and positioning of the antenna. (Posted on 8/9/2016)
