• 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 am ready for another scanner. My old pro-92 from radio shack is falling apart. I live in Brockton,Massachusetts and listen to mostly police frequencies. I'm looking to spend between 150 and 200 on a new or used scanner what is the best bang for my buck? Any suggestions?

Check local Radio Shacks to see if they have a Pro 164 in stock. You may find one in your price range. Does trunking and will fit your needs. I own one and I like it very much.
