This evening I hooked up the radio scanner to the UHF TV antenna to see if using that might get me one of those '35 cm pirates' which should be active in the 856 - 862 MHz and 865 - 868 MHz ranges which is UHF TV channel 69/70. So the preamp should work.

It took a bit of searching through the junkbox to find parts for a cable to get from the output of the UHF TV antenna (through the power inserter) which is a Belling-Lee connector (as shown in the picture) to the input of the scanner which is a BNC connector.

My guess is these transmitters would be active on a Sunday evening. But, the only thing I heard in wide FM mode was a wireless headset.
