    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:

Have a thought.....want some guidance.

Hey all,

So after a lot of input from everyone here, it sounds like there isn't a jack of all trades scanner that is good for MIL/CIVIL Airband/Local ATC and digital Phase 2 for my local fire/police. So I think what I want to do is keep my Icom R5 and PRO-89 for military and airband(since I have had very good luck with it) and get myself a descent digital scanner. Is that a smart and the best decision?
Let me know what you all think.....

Thanks again for all the help!

Luke

Since you've already invested in your current MilAir receivers and they are working well for you, this sounds like a well-reasoned approach. A current P25 phase II scanner might not work as well for MilAir as what you already own. Also, since MilAir transmissions tend to be short, better to commit a receiver to that task full-time.
