• 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:

From what I can see, there is no online audio specific to your county. If you go to "Live Audio" on the RadioReference.com - Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference page & click on Texas, you can see the counties in blue around you that do.

From what I am seeing, Nueces, Bee & Calhoun are the only counties that are currently providing a feed in your immediate area.

When I reviewed you county, provided the RR data is accurate, you should be able to monitor county law enforcement with an analog scanner. These can be purchased for less than $70 in most cases. Sometimes, you can get a brand new radio for a very cheap price.

However, law enforcement and emergency services will be migrating to digital radios in the near future. But, when digital migration happens, an analog scanner will still be capable of listening to Skywarn frequencies, ham radio, etc.

Sometimes, you can find digital scanners in pawn shops for cheap prices, particularly when these stores don't know much about these radios. I strongly recommend that you find someone who knows something about digital radios before you make a purchase, if you so decide.

Radio Shack has sales on the Pro-106 and Pro-197 radios (two digital models) on an intermittent basis.
