Hello All. I currently own a Uniden Bearcat 780XLT (27 Bands from 25 MHz - 1300 MHz with 500 channels). It is hooked up to an external Outdoor Scanner Discone Antenna with the same range of bands as the scanner. I have ran into a few problems. I could only install the antenna in the attic. I live about 13 miles to the Northwest of KBDR (Bridgeport). When my computer is turned off I am able to pick up about 5-10 NY frequencies, 5 Boston as well as KBDR ATIS, Tower, Ground and KOXC ATIS. When my computer is turned on (quite often) I am not able to pick any transmissions up from ATC. I have a feeling it's because of computer radio waves, but when other computers in the house are turned on it works fine. Any suggestions on what to do? The scanner is about 3 or 4 feet away from the computer. I can always move the scanner further away and get a longer coax cable if need be.
P.S. Congratulations to Ed (PHL_Approach) a friend of mine who recently has the KNXX feed going! Great job Ed! Nice and clear!
