Keep as far away from any metallic objects as possible, ie;  vent pipes,
roof vents, attic fans, electrical wiring, other antenna lead-in wires.
Keep your antenna cable length to a minimum.

Sorry, I meant to say, this is my first antenna install of one that didnt come
with the scanner, i.e., a *** ducky or a telescopic one.

Yes I do have a tip, don't mount it in the attic :-) put it outside and 10
to 20 feet above the roof line :-)

If you've got a tree nearby, that would work nicely !
