• 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:

    GMRS and Linking

    The GMRS Linked Network has been running for a year now and growing everyday. With that being said if you have a GMRS callsign and no repeaters around you or you own a Repeater then you might want to check out The GMRS Linked Network. They have plug and play simplex Nodes ready to go. The...

    'Tis the Season... Bubble Packs return like the Swallows of Capistrano

    FRS/GMRS: There's a couple of kids that have continued using their bubble packs, on and off, for more than a year since I've been at this location. Of course, they ramp up operations during breaks; especially over Christmas. Adults are apparently getting bubble packs and Bull Frog radios around...

    I need help getting my radios talking to each other.

    I have 6 of these types of radios with 16 channels: http://a.co/eXJKx5M and they all talk to each other, even different brands. I have 4 of these 22 channel radios http://a.co/iWhRIt2 and they are suppose to have a 5 mile range. They can hear the 16 channel radios, but when these 22 channel...

    Another FRS/GMRS Question:

    I've been hearing sporadically on FRS/GMRS channel 16 and every now and then I hear a school bus dispatch coming over the air. Now I realize in Canada it's perfectly legal to use this radio service for a business but it seems rather odd to me. Especially when they are giving out parents &...

    FRS or MURS?

    I'm new to these forums and recently new to the radio waves but I have a question. MURS or FRS? I own a little more than 100 acres of half-flat, half-hill property with extensive amount of trees and hills. My family and I, and sometimes friends, use this property (or as we call it, the "farm")...

    Motorola 2 way frequencies

    When using the sub channels,ie. ch 21 and 54 of the privacy codes, does that alter the frequency used? Is there a listing of them if so?

    Motorola hsn4035 amplified speaker- FRS?

    I would like to run this amplified speaker off of the earphone jack of an FRS radio. I want to be able to use it as a wireless PA system. What kind of matching transformer arrangement would I need? When I hook it up directly I can barely hear anything, I'm assuming it's due to the mis matched...

    FRS/GMRS use after an EMP

    Hi all, First time poster on the site. I'm looking for specific information to protect my FRS/GMRS radios from an EMP or other natural occuring event that is similar. I have been building and testing several Faraday cages to block out the over powering RF/radiative signals caused by these...
