Is here something I can purchase to go in the line to increase the signal on my police scanner. I was looking on Ebay but not sure what to get. Using a RS Discone antenna. Thanks Ron

You can get a preamplifier, but the problem is you may saturate the front end of the receiver, causing an overload and distortion.
If you can find on for TV use, with variable output, and use TV grade connectors, it might help...depending on how attenuated your signal really is. DUKE, WB9OJD
