Scanner antenna replacement
Author: KA7008

I need to replace my damaged stock antenna for my handheld Uniden BCD396XT.
Looking for "all-band" suggestions.  I'm primarily focused on VHF (obviously) however I do like to monitor public safety on 700/800mhz.

That's quite a band to span, 160-800.  I have had good luck over the years with https://www.smileyantenna.com/

Multi-Band antennas are a compromise, usually the more Bands the worse in all the Bands, or use the idea of changing antennas for any particular band.
