• 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:

Naw, I built one for less $$ than a Stridsburg.

Get a suitable low noise amp off of fleabay, add a distribution block and
voila.. low band multicoupler. It was all SMA, so you just need appropriate
adapters to go to scanners.

I think I built the whole thing for <$50 in FleaBay surplus parts.

It will do 30-600mhz pretty well, but I only use it for my 4 low band radios listening to CHP, Ebay Regional Parks, San Francisco's backup channels, and various EOC channels.
