|Similar Style Scanner Antenna|
|SO239 Chassis Connector|
I am working on a simple home-brew scanner antenna project for my bearcat scanner in my Ham CB Shack or as I call it my Man Cave. It is a very simple design for anyone to try. It is basically a vertical copper wire soldered in a SO239 chassis connector. The wire is just about the same size as the solder part of the connector. You can easily pick these up at your local radio shack or buy them from one of the dealers on the internet. I would also recommend going through Amazon.com or through Ebay.com for some good deals. The vertical wire is just typical copper house wire. The heavy gauge is enough so it will stay straight.
