In theory, the best antenna is one matched to the band you are wishing to operate in

The one that came with the scanner would be multi band suited to the radio (well Uniden says so) . What you could go for if you are at home is a amplified receiving antenna, placed up on a pole.

As you have not said were your are located It could also be due to your location and what you are trying to receive as well.
Ebay has a few under $50 that would suit the BNC connection.

If you want one for handheld, it does a great job on the emergency bands, and air bands aswell. 7 bucks from eBay. Nagoya 771
