That's funny...I have one of those and, when I use it with my scanner, it is
very noisy around 140-170MHz. Several freq's are covered in static when
using it. However, when I use it with my 2meter HT, it transmits just fine,
but again has trouble with receiving. I've checked out my radios; they work
fine with other antennas.
