Product details

Sky Scan Mobile ScannerAntenna

The ‘Skyscan’ is a great all-round scanning antenna, which should enhance the reception capability of any radio scanner. Each of the nest of four different length antenna that make up the Sky Scan are designed to pick up a specific frequency range, this method has proven to work extremely well.
Specifications:
Frequency range: 25-2000MHz RX
95mm magnetic mount
64cm length
4 metres co-ax cable terminated with a BNC plug
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all - rounder This aerial picks up a fair amount of background noise but - it does pick up more signals than my previous whip antenna. Positioned properly this is a great little antenna. Needs a decent ground plane though since this is a mag-mount! I could hear the radio transmissions from the Red Arrows as they displayed over 45 miles away - and I'm not exactly on high ground!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In contrast to the 'miniscan antenna' (see my review) the Sky scan, has RG58 cable, large magmount base and an overall robust construction. There are several differing lengths of antenna built into one unit apparently designed to provide optimum peformance on each bandwith. I've compared peformance against the Miniscan, bearing in both are advertised as 'wideband' and found the miniscan to marginally outperform the Skyscan on HAM and Airband (not tested on other bands) - This has led me to conclude the multiple antenna design is a bit of a 'gimmick'. Nevertheless a vast improvement over the standard rubber ducks available of any description. In conclusion, Choose this antenna over the 'Miniscan' based on the fact its a much more robust piece of kit rather than a promise of additonal performance. Overall a fantastic antenna for mobile use able to stand the rigours of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly effective for its size, good patch lead and mag mount, although keep it dry as it can rust if left out in the rain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Returned for refund. No improvement whatsoever compared to using a wire coat-hanger! Looks the part but gimmicky nonsense. Placing on a metal surface made no difference.

hi does the skyscan need a metal item to be placed on for best results or will window sill do as good thanks

Asked by: andy
The surface shouldn't affect the aerial function, however it would be less stable due to the magmount base not securing to a non-magnetic surface.

Does this have to be mounted to a metal surface, or it just be placed for example on a windowsill?

Asked by: jayt2005
It should be ok to just stand on a flat surface such as a windowsill.

I have a diamond dx nr 770 which is vhf and uhf and although it does pick up the aircraft in the air on the airband aircraft, it struggles to pick up the tower controller side and the terminal controller side. Will this antenna work better for airband?.

Asked by: John Doe
Yes this should help improve signal for airband.
