• 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 figured why go still picture when you can go... uh not still picture.
Just an excuse to use my new flash camcorder.

Hope you enjoy

Great video! It's nice to see in video how each scanner is organized and what it is scanning. Do you take your handhelds with you if you go anywhere? Wouldn't you have wanted a base model instead?

That is a great video. However, I must say it was worse than Chinese water torture to have to have the audio interrupted every time that stupid 'Instant Message' advertisement crap in Photobucket went off rofl.

Nice setup man.

Yes I take my hand helds in the car everywhere I go. The other two stay at home.

All radios are programed with the same scan lists so they can function any way I want them to. With the exception of Digital radio my PSR-500 does all of that. I have it setup

Bearcat- Simplex ems/fire, and conventional RCMP / Rockeyview district, Calgary Tone out fire calls.

Icom- Set to unitrunker (Calgary hybrid system)

Pro 97- Calgary Fire / Ems

Gre500- Calgary Digital radio ie: Police, Airport authorities, ect..

Hey Calgarytoad,
That was great! Just a great little shack and very cool idea on the video. I may do one in the summer as well.

Nice video ! I wanted to suggest a "YouTube your Shack" thread a while ago, but kept putting it off...just like I keep putting off pics of my shack. I'll do it eventually ! What do you keep in that Altoids tin ? I ditched those awful tasting candies and now I keep six AA nimh batts in there that rotate in my 246.
