• 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:

My current (and second) Uniden BC92XLT has broken on me. I am in the market for a new scanner. I am an amateur listener from Bay City and was just going to spring for the RS Pro-164. Although after some research I have found that Saginaw is currently switching over to digital and word is Bay City may be changing also.

I also travel to Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor and Detroit frequently. What scanner would best suit me? I am assuming a digital? This is probably a stupid question but digital scanners will also cover analog correct? So I can still observe Bay City?

Is there anyone currently looking to sell a digital handheld?

Yea, id say go with the Pro-106 or equivalent, (Base or the GRE version). It gets pretty much everything youll need and i really like it, very user friendly.
