A good, affordable upgrade.

 

I bought this antenna to replace the stock "rubber duckie" on my Radio Shack Pro-135. Upon installing, the first thing I noticed is that it wobbles in it's base. The second thing I noticed was the weight. It probably weighs half as much as the scanner...

I was looking into getting better reception from my pro-82 scanner, so I took a drive to radio shack and the worker recommended this particular antenna. I bought it, then immediately replaced the original antenna with the new one. Wow what a change I...
