I recommend you buy one, you cant go wrong!!I just received mine yesterday and I am in love with this radio. I ordered it with the SMA BNC adapter to work with my Diamond RH77CA. This antenna has new life now after being on my RS 162 scanner. I'm now hearing things I've never been able to hear before even with great skip from my RS last year. Although I've heard people say it was hard to program, once I got the hang of it, I got most of the frequencies programmed without a hitch. The audio is pretty clear even if its a weak signal. Was definitely worthwhile in purchasing.
