As a general rule: radios and cell phones are prohibited items during competition days at the course.

If you bring a scanner, you must be very discrete. Since UHF is the predominant frequency range, an antenna tuned for that band works best. Many operations are simplex so 1/4 wave antennas are preferable to UHF stubby antennas.
