    Good Antenna January 20, 2016
    Reviewer: Victor Pisaniello from Valley Stream, NY United States  
    I purchased the antenna because the one which came with my Uniden scanner did not have good reception.
    I found this one picks up more calls, is clearer then  the factory antenna.
    I would recommend this antenna to anyone looking for better reception, and it's @ a good price.

    Much Better Than Stock Rubber Duck January 20, 2016
    Reviewer: GRP from Los Angeles, CA United States  
    I tested the "Regular Gainer" BNC antenna on my Radio Shack Pro-651 with excellent results across a wide range of frequencies.  

    This antenna showed an improvement from 39Mhz to 808Mhz.  I was surprised that the W-801 was even better than either of the two telescoping antennas I tried in the 39 to 43Mhz range.  Not only did it pull in everything that the telescoping antennas pulled in but it did so with a better noise floor.   Also, it outperformed the stock antenna in every frequency range I tested.   From 39 to 43 Mhz, 150 to 158Mhz, 450 to 453Mhz, 506 to 508Mhz and 800 to 810 Mhz.  

    The 801 has a quality feel, it is very well built out of good materials.  It feels like it will last.

    Performed as hoped. December 27, 2015
    Reviewer: WAGinWNY from Western NY  
    On my BCD436HP, this antenna upgrade increased signal strength at the receiver for distant stations, as I hoped it would. It also maintains the coat-pocket portability of the stock antenna, as it is only slightly taller, and is flexible. (Consider the 881 if you don't carry your scanner around outdoors with you.)

    This antenna does a great job at pulling in the frequencies it was designed for.

    I wanted an upgrade and this one is great! It pulls in more local stations and the price was spot on!
