• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Yupiteru MVT-7100

    I am considering purchasing the Yupi receiver. It seems to come highly recommended by a lot of people who monitor the civil airband and it's known for its great sensitivity. My question is, how about selectivity? Is it great, better than what a dedicated aviation transceiver's for example...

    New -- GRE PSR-700 as an airband radio

My primary interest is in airband monitoring, both commercial and military. My question is: Will the new PSR-700...
