• 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:

    GPS-aware app for Android

    I thought about this while driving back from New Mexico last week. All of the scanner apps I have used are GPS-aware in that they can offer nearby feeds. Is there an app that will automatically switch as you travel from jurisdiction to jurisdiction? That way you're always listening to the locals.

    TYT MD-390G won't lock onto GPS

    I've found posts about receiving another radio's GPS over DMR, but I can't find anything about displaying my own GPS location on the TYT MD-390G. As far as I can tell, it's all set up correctly. I have an ID from DMR-MARC, I've installed the code plug for my area. None of this should affect the...

    Challenge for Uniden

    Let's see if Uniden can shrink their next HP scanner to shirt pocket size. Impossible? I present as evidence the Kenwood TH-F6a tri-band transceiver -- just 2-5/16 x 3-7/16 x 1-3/16 inches, with a Li-ion battery that has nearly twice the wattage of the BCD436HP. Introduced about 15 years ago...

    BCD325P2: GPS Attachment(s)

I want to use it in the car, so one with some sort of 12VDC lighter or USB power plug is preferred. The BC-GPSK looks sort of like it would work, but the DB9 is...
