    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:

Has anyone used TSC-100 scanner?

I don't have one but aviation scanning is one of my newer interests. I do love gadgets. Its on my short list of purchases for the future.

Get a BC125AT. It covers all of the TSC air bands plus mil air and 400 mhz. Selling for about $90.00 on Amazon.

Can you be more specific? Are there sensitivity or selectivity issues? Does the radio have bad audio quality? There are occasions where I do plane photography that I wish I had a radio dedicated to the airband, as the other radios in the car are still monitoring public safety so that I don't miss any fire jobs (the main focus-and paying part-of my photography.)

Personally, it looks like a competitor to the older Uniden UBC30-XLT handheld.

I've seen the TTI / TSC in FBO and pilot shops and of course being even remotely close to an aviation counter, are about twice as expensive as everything should be.

WHY a superior scanner, like the simple BC75XLT isn't sold in FBO shops and other aviation outlets is beyond me. Maybe pricing control forces a competitor to the Uniden 30xlt?

The cuteness factor of the UB30-xlt just drives me nuts. I want one so bad, but Uniden won't sell it here. But I'm not sure I'd like to open the wallet for the TTI to get the cute / test factor satisfaction. :)

(hint - put an Icom FA-B02AR bnc duck on either one, and I'll bet performance improves - especially for those who are getting desense / overload from FM Broadcast reception, which both the TTI and Uniden are capable of receiving. With only double-conversion front ends. Sorry to beat on a dead horse about the duck..)
