Hook your scanner to a J-Pole and see how it works. 

I mentioned on the net Sunday evening that I wanted to discuss J-pole antennas. We never got to that but I did want to pass along these web pages where you can learn more about the venerable J-pole and get a good idea on how to construct one for yourself. If you want to make a number of inexpensive antennas that will perform well for you give the J-pole a try.

( This page includes a nice calculator to figure lengths )

If you have additional questions you might want to check with Ron, KB3DDF, who is our resident J-Pole specialist. You can find his email address at QRZ.com.
