• 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:

    WS1010- $140 vs PRO-649- $100 WS1025- $140 vs PRO-650- $100 WS1040- $600 vs PRO-651- $400 WS1065- $600 vs PRO-652- $400 As far as I can tell, aren't the Whistler models identical spec-wise to the Radio Shack ones? If this is the case, why the outrageous price difference? What's so special...

    Have the HP1 and love it but it is a tad to bulky to carry, so I would like to get another portable to use with similar features or at least some ease of use.

    A (Hopefully) Helpful Tip To Any Scanner Owner

    Hi Everyone, Although I demonstrate this tip on a PSR-310, it can apply to any scanner with a customizable welcome screen, which is why I posted this video here. It only takes a couple of minutes to set up, but it could save you hundreds of dollars if you ever lose your scanner. I hope it...
