• 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:

I traded my '01 Explorer in for a '05 Impala. I installed a Uniden 996t, Kenwood TM-D700a, Sirius radio, GPS for 996t/d700a, and two NMO mount antennas. I also have a Kenwood TK-790 that I thought about installing, but I don't think I will. It would have been used for railfanning/work. I can just use the TM-D700a for foaming. Still working on a solution for the GPS wire and speaker wire that run on top of the "hump". There is a speaker mounted behind the 996t that can't be seen in the pixs. Here are the pics:

Yes, they go to work in the car with me. The only toys I have on the train is a handheld TK-290 used for work, ham, and public safety and a handheld sirius radio. From time to time I bring a Dell laptop with verizon air card.

I do more monitoring of railroad chatter then actual foaming.

It's pretty easy to do stuff with that front carpet. If you snap the molding off the front doors along the floor, and just roll it back from the front, it comes right up. There's lots of a room underneath to run the wires. Then just make a slit under the seats, and run it down and under. Easy as pie! If pie was easy...
