Antenna that CAN DO!

This is the little antenna that “can do”. The Antennacraft ST3 (also sold as the Radio Shack 20-176) outperforms multiple other base and mobile antenna configurations I have tried. Yes, the larger ST2 is noticeably better with a greater range but that antenna is 8½ feet tall and has a massive presence if mounted above the house roofline (it also uses a coaxial cable with F-connecters intended for TV antennas – what’s with that?). The ST3 is a mere 19 inches tall and is almost invisible when mounted above a two story house roofline and it terminates to an SO239 connection like a REAL scanner antenna. I have used both antennas (as well as others) and have taken down the monster and I am sticking with the ST3. Its performance is so close that it just isn’t worth having the giant sister antenna looming above my house.

Some reviews point to the radials being flimsy or unsecure. I simply placed two small toothed washers between the base and the nuts securing the radials and they are now rock solid. The antenna stands up to severe thunderstorms with no problems. My ST3 is mounted about six inches above the second floor roofline and is about 20-22 feet above ground level. Here is how it performs:
• 155 Mhz = I get stations clearly from a distance 45 miles and routinely hear stations up 85 miles away.
• 460 Mhz = This band has the clearest reception but I only have local stations using that frequency range anymore, so I don’t know what the distance will be.
• Air band = It picks up everything on this frequency range with a solid reception distance of about 100 mile for planes and stations.
• 800 Mhz = I live only a half mile from a TV/radio stations broadcast antenna farm with multiple antennas including a 1,300 foot tower at 50,000 watts. I can’t hook up ANY external antenna to my trunk tracking scanners or I get nothing but bleed over from the towers. Therefore I can’t report on the antenna in this frequency range.
• Trains and Marine = about 45-60 miles.

If you are looking for an unobtrusive antenna that is a solid performer, this is really the only choice. If you don’t mind having a big ugly antenna looming predominately over your house, then the ST2 will add about a 30% improvement on range over the smaller ST3. I should also note that I use a high quality multi coupler to run five receivers off of the single ST3 and it drives all of the radios without any decibel/signal loss. When compared to all antennas out there regardless of size, the ST3 is probably a 4-star but when considering the performance compared to size it’s a solid 5-star rating.

You get what you pay for its [$] very marginal performance low band doesnt work at all vhf & UHF seems to get the best performance but is very limited in distance & reception. I see nothing rugged in the construction this would probably work well in the city.
