This slim, handsome 7 3/4 inch long rubber-duck antenna provides a great reception boost on 700 and 800 MHz channels over stock antennas. Available in the SMA connection only for Uniden 396 and 346T and XT models. Whether you're monitoring in this band trunked or conventional channels, analog or digital, this antenna is a fantastic choice. Testing at our office confirmed the pulling power of this antenna was on par, in some cases, with outdoor roof-mounted wide-band scanner antennas - we were pulling in the Rhode Island State trunking system from 15 or so miles away! (your results may vary). So impressed were we with the performance of the antennas that we purchased a very large quantity and thus we're able to offer them to you at a very reduced price.

Best bang for the buck July 25, 2014
Reviewer: Thomas Osbon from Knoxville, MD United States  
I recently bought this antenna to replace the one that came with my BCD436HP and I was very impressed with its performance. It may not take advantage of all the threads on the scanners sma connector but it has zero effect on scanner or antenna performance. I live in a very mountainous area and I was not able to recieve the signals I wanted to hear, but this little jewel did the trick, it also does well with frequencies below 800MHz. I am now pulling in signals from over 50 miles away. Buy this antenna, you wont regret it.

It really does the job! March 6, 2014
Reviewer: Kenneth Mueller from Appleton, WI United States  
Our area recently went digital so I purchased the new uniden portable scanner. I've used several antenna's with mixed results. An extendable antenna seemed to work best but I sometimes take it in the car so I would prefer a flexible antenna. I saw this antenna and its claims but the reviews were mixed. The biggest complaint was that it didn't screw in all the way to the base of the scanner, which is irrevalent as long as the main components inside the antenna and the scanner make contact, which they do. I decided to give it a try and I'm very pleased with the results. I can listen to everything in my area with clarity. The base of the antenna should have been longer, but that's just cosmetics. It actually does what it claims to do so I'm giving it 5 stars.

Doesn't measure up February 6, 2014
Reviewer: Tim from New London, CT United States  
After a side-by-side comparison with the RS 800 MHz and the Laird Technologies 800 MHz, the SpectrumForce does not receive as well as I would have liked for my area.  I found that both the Laird and RS antennas received a clearer signal at a higher signal strength with 800 trunked systems, as well as the RS and Laird did a better job with VHF and UHF reception.  I also had the mount problems previously mentioned though I am unsure if made any difference after testing it with an SMA to BNC adapter.

Great antenna but December 24, 2013
Reviewer: Edwin Delaney from St Louis, MO United States  
On my BCD396T It doesn't screw all the way to the bottom of the antenna post. I think this impedes reception, at least in my case it does. It just needs to be threaded about 3/8 inch to get it to the bottom. Other than that it is a great antenna. With what I described above if you are close to the area operating the p25 system your signal will not be impeded. I am ,20 miles out and I take a bit of ahit on signal quality.
Construction is solid and even with the little problem I would still buy another.
