Have an RS discone in the attic that I was using since I bought the HomePatrol a month ago. After reading post here on the advantage of mounting an antenna outdoors, I bought and installed a Antennacraft ST-2 today. I now hear Boston area traffic as clear as I hear my home town. I am also picking up towns that I have not heard while using the attic discone. BTW Boston is 40 miles from where I live. I now use the discone for my pro-95 to pick up home town and the Homepatrol for all my other needs. If you are in the thinking process of putting up an outdoor antenna take my advise do it today.
