• 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:

Do you mean hook the 3 scanners into some kind of central unit that allows you to set which scanner to send to the headphones at a given time? I'm just confused as to how you would listen to 3 scanners on 1 set of headphones.

I would start here:

http://www.radioshack.com/product/i...hone+jack&kw=headphone+jack&parentPage=search

I couldn't find it on the RS site but they also sell a little 1" coupler which is female on both ends. Then you will need 3 cables. You could probably put it all together for $25 or so...

The coupler would go on the one male end of the three way deal and your headphones would go into that. Seems like it could work.

This is actually using this oposite of how it is intended. The intended use is to use 3 headphones on one device... but I don't see why you couldn't reverse that...

I think I would hand build something and wire 2 scanners to one side of the headphones and 1 scanner to the other...

Either that (make his soon to be XO wear it) or he's a fighter pilot. They listen to all kinds of stuff through their headsets. Just systems I helped maintain in my younger days comprise this list and I'm sure it's not inclusive.

1. Radio communications - flight controllers, ground liasons, air to air with your flight, navigation systems (TACAN)
2. On board systems - intercom (for multi seat aircraft, but then with everything they are listening to, they may very well be talking to themselves), ECM signals, fire control systems (when target is locked on, etc), stall warning (only when in a stall), AOA tone (had this on the F-4), other warning bells and alarms (normally off).

I've listened to two scanners at once with stero headsets (phones or buds). One scanner per ear.

Actually, how many of us listen to more than one scanner at a time? I normally have two going. Sounds like a poll question to me. :D
