• 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:

Well here's my humble attempt at a profesional looking install. The scanner is a BCT8, also there is a Sirius satellite radio, a Galaxy DX959, an external speaker for the scanner and right beside the satellite radio is an accessory plug for my in-dash dvd player. The screen folds out and up from the player.

i wish i had your "dash realestate"--very nice install!
The "realestate" that you speak of is actually a Jotto Desk console that was made to replace the whole lower dash. It's the only way I would have had room for anything unless I wanted to start drilling a whole bunch of holes in the vehicle dash. It's custom fitted for the F-250 and uses the mounting holes that were already there from the lower dash. If I ever wanted to take it out (and I have no idea why I would lol) I could put the lower dash back in and it would look like there was never anything there.

No, sorry, no antenna pics yet. I took the dash pics with a cell phone and as you can see they didn't turn out very well. As soon as I can remember where I put my digi cam I'll take more pics. And yes I do listen to Howard from time to time lol. Mostly keep it on 103, Blue collar comedy lol.

Very nice setup, I like that external plug for the DVD player. Give me an idea for my setup. Do, digital photography and wanted to incorporate a monitor to view my work when out in the field.

Like the setup, does give me lots of idea. That is why I like this site and what I can learn from reading what others have done. A way of seeing ideas that I may have and how they can incorporated to real world operations.

Once again, great professional looking install. I think the manufactures should be paying attention at what were doing her. GOOD JOB.....
