I have a homemade J-pole(made from directions on this site). I have been playing around with different stuff and have a weird event. I put on about 6 feet of RG-59u cable. Connected to 1) the j-pole 2) the little rubber 6 inch antenna that was on my police scanner. The little rubber whip off the scanner is getting range nearly 3-4 times that of j-pole.

Any answers as to why?

Do you think that might just be a bad antenna design?
