Multiple scanner antennas /

Am having some success with a 4 foot wire antenna hooked up to my BC
95 XLT;,

 picking up Marine signals from some distance  ( SSB at that !)

Would like to increase the probability of picking up signals from
further away..

- are there plans for a multiple antenna array for scanners?

RSVP to group

Tks . ..

Most scanners can't handle big antennas.  You'll do best with a modest
antenna up in the clear (mind the power lines).  I get excellent results
with a lowly Hustler discone.  It works all the way through HF on my
AR8200MKIII.
