• 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:

Is there anyplace in the Des Moines area that would carry the Bearcat BCD 996T? My mom is thinking about buying one (I'd be doing the programming) but she wants to see one up close before she drops that kind of coin. Thanks in advance for your replies.

Thanks for your post and Welcome to Radio Reference. To my knowledge the shack doesn't sell them so your out of luck there. The easiest place to get them is online from scannermaster or other online retailers. There also isn't really much digital in des moines other than the dot, highway helpers and the occasional car-car isp chat. If i see a place that does sell them i'll let ya know

The Closest Circuit City I believe is Omaha, Twin Cities, Chicago, or Kansas City, there going back to having to order online. Still don't know why we don't have one.
