Hi guys, I'm working on my PPL and have just started getting into scanning. I recently was given a Maycom AR-108 handheld scanner. I've also purchased a Watson W881 handset antenna and a Workman magnet antenna for the car.
Now I'm on a mission to get this thing setup at home. I started to cut the pieces for a J-Pole (I live in Brampton and want to pick up 121.3 as well as much atc from Toronto/Pearson as possible).
It occurred to me that maybe I could just get a used (new is like $400) antenna off of a Cessna.....
I think that these are grounded on the chassis of the Cessna but I could mount it on a metal plate and then ground that plate (run a wire to the cold water line outside).
Has anyone tried/heard of this??? Am I better off with the J-Pole???
