I use an old fan stand and it is now in the loft ready, can not test till tomorrow as my f connectors and bnc adapters never arrived today. Can not decide how long to run coax, my bedroom is downstairs but that is going mean close to 50ft of cable ( pf100 ) is that to long or should i just run it to the spare bedroom about 20 feet. If I do the later just means the scanner will get used less, I guess all this depends if my first antenna effort works.
