That's true, but its not a scanner, nor is it easy to use for a beginner. This is a Uhf DMR radio. 73, n9zas

Being a former resident of Manchester CT, the shopping mecca of north central CT, I accumulated over 50 various frequencies from all the stores in that area. Since i've moved down to FL, a lot of those frequencies apply to stores down here too. I think all the Target stores nationwide uses all the same frequencies, since they are the same down here. Wal Marts generally vary from store to store. I haven't really been on a store hunt lately, but I was at an Outlet Mall last month and a lot of the stores came up on my scanner, and I agree, listening to the employees chit chat back and forth and generally "flirt" with each other is humorous !

DMR is still new to the Scanner World, so the information is basically not out there.

It's going to be years for some of the DMR to be found, identified etc
Just like it has taken years for the Analog from the Big Box stores. Yet there is still more to be found, just if there was 72 hrs in a day

Sadly, tho, the new Scanner owners want it, but it's not there, and they won't spend the time to seek/search. One of the best days for Business/Mall monitoring to find frequencies is Black Friday, also some stores just use the radios during the Holidays and others use the VOIP function on the Store Phones...

Walmarxists don't know what to do when someone keys up on their channel with a digital radio.

I would imagine it would scare the crap outta people if they heard DMR audio on an analog radio out of the blue.. also does anyone have any funny FRS radio findings? Kinda like funny odd things?

The targets sometimes have 4 or more channels, I found one that had 6, Loss prevention was one of them..

I have only ever heard people on FRS twice. BUT, just the other day I was scanning around and heard somebody climbing up a tower. He was letting people on the ground know the condition of the tower structure every so many feet. Later on he was talking about lowering an antenna and the ground crew needed to move further away with their ropes. They also lowered a radio. All of this went in reverse direction with the new equipment being installed.

This went on for a few hours on FRS channel 7. They probably use the cheap radios because if it falls nobody cares. They are only a few feet away as well so there is not much power needed. Makes sense to me. I have no idea how far away they were because there are no towers around me for a few miles and I was hearing this on my HT with a duckie antenna.

Another time I was listening on the scanner and a couple of drivers going down the freeway were chatting it up and had some pretty filthy language and DPL activated and I heard what sounded like a panic at Walmart. Some lady called out "Radio Confrontation" and told everyone to meet in the PR Room or something, can remember what it was called. They ended up turning off for a few hours because I didn't hear them until later that evening. Surprised they didn't just change channels since they were using the Motorola RMM2050.
LOL, great story. If they were running PL or DPL they never would have heard the other users traveling through the area. That Walmart* was probably using the radios as they come right out of the box.

I've shopped at many different Walmart* stores and found them to be using Motorola RMM2050 MURS radios on 154.570 and 154.600 and using DPL. I use DPL on MURS too. I keep the volume down low on whatever radio I'm listening on while inside the store and I've never had a problem. The peeps that work there don't even notice since cell phones are so commonplace. Since the RMM2050 is a MURS radio and complies with the latest MURS rules, we already know all the frequencies in the radio....it only has the 5 MURS freqs and nothing else. I've studied the RMM2050 from the perspective of exploring the model in the Business Radio CPS (a free download from Motorola). It seems to be not a bad radio for its intended use.

I suspect Walmart* is Motorola's largest customer of the RMM2050 nationwide. From Walmart*'s perspective it's a cheap and easy solution for radio communications and doesn't require licensing. It may be just business as usual from years ago where Walmart* was already using 154.570 and 154.600 before MURS was created.

My small town has a "balloon fest" every year and they use frs/gmrs for balloon to chase vehicle communications. It can be interesting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-D3eOPODCU

Being close to an interstate I hear travelers. Once I heard a couple, and she stated that they barely made that red light. I couldn't resist and keyed up and told them yeah I saw them. She sounded a little nervous asking him if he heard that.

I have never heard walmart watching customers ready to steal items. The 154.570 and 154.600 yes but that is usually employees. What about the security guys in the hidden areas of the store most people dont know about. With all the cameras up near the ceiling all over there has to be a room full of monitors. I never heard security watching customers on 154.570 154.600. How do they communicate?

At my store, mainly cell phone. The main asset protection guy carries a radio to talk to the the employees at the door, on the main channel. The guy that follows people around uses his cell phone to talk to the main guy, and pretends to be a customer. Our radios have all 5 murs frequencies but all of them are seldom used.

Speaking of fun when Walmart sold working scanners on display, I would put the scanner on the store frequency
