• 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:

    Wilmington in the database

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE - would one of the database admins who understands the Wilmington system please fix it. The problem - Wilmington, although "technically" part of the State system now, is a separate system. So the programming in the Uniden scanners does not allow you to listen to Wilmington...

    HP-2: HP-2 Goods and bads

    Well, I just got my HP-2 via UPS yesterday. It came in a surprisingly small box the size of two bricks in a pile. The unit itself is very well made and feels it. The big display is not the best but works well for what it tries to do. The antenna connector is sturdy and the battery compartment is...

    Do both versions of the HomePatrol support the RWC?

    I'm looking at the wikis, and the page on the RWC states that HomePatrol can receive the RWC, but not the HP2. The HP2's page also mentions that it can pick up P25 Phase II, but doesn't mention Phase I. I'm looking for a scanner that can pick up the system, since my BC796D Can't hear it and is a...

    Hello! I am returning to the scanner hobby. I had a Radio Shack 800 mhz scanner back in the early 90's and loved it! I recently got my Ham license and became re-interested in listening to scanners. I just got a great deal on a brand new Homepatrol 1 and I want to listen to the Springboro...

    I have some general familiarity with scanners and bought my wife the Homepatrol so she could listen to the Opelika activity when I was not available to help her.

    Uniden HomePatrol GPS Cable Issue

    I'm having an issue with my Uniden HomePatrol GPS cable on the male end. It will go in the port, but is very loose and falls out. It's a rather poor place to locate the port, the way it is now makes it easy to snag the cable as well. Does anyone have any solutions for this? Thanks!
