• 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:

    Take a look at the following link: :: Uniden Australia :: That's a remote head mobile UHF CB transceiver with a seperate 60 channel 400-512 MHz scanning receiver, in one case, that Uniden manufactured for the Australian market. I would like to see Uniden or Whistler (or almost anyone else)...

    small VHF antenna for pocket device

    Anybody has an idea how to make or buy a MURS antenna,151-155 MHz, for a small pocket transceiver that should transmit up to 1W. The stub antennas are pretty bad when held close to the body. Maybe some kind of patch or ferrite antenna will do better.

    HT 1250 TX power for MURS

    Hello Anybody here have any experience with tuning down the power wattage for the transmitter so one can "legally" use an HT1250 on the multi use radio channels. I'm aware the radio does not meet the exact MURS specifics but it seems to be that if the radio can be tuned to meet the standards...

    RDV2020 question

    I would like to set the frequency on my RDV2020 to 154.57 frequency, which is a MURS channel. I have the CPS but doesn't give me the option (because it isn't a MURS radio), but the frequency is in the range for the radio. Is it possible to get my radio to operate on that frequency? What would I...
