75ohm coax on vertical 50 ohm scanner antenna

Postby Southwales » Wed Feb 14, 2018 12:31 pm

Hi, this scanner antenna is advertised as 50ohm impedance https://damsu.co.uk/two-way-radio/anten ... oQdaGenzMI , will it matter If I use the remainder of my pf100 75ohm coax?

For receive, no.

As for the antenna? The specs are vague, nobody seems to know anything of what is inside - so your home-brew one probably performs better!
