• 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:

Help please...

Chances are it's programmed for a public safety agency or a ham radio operator. It's possible it could be for a private business. Either way, it could be illegal you to talk on your new toy.

Basically you bought something that is going to be useless to you. Did it even come with the battery charger? You also need to know if it's for VHF or UHF things like that. as I said it useless for you at least.

Until you learn more simply use it as a paperweight or desk decoration. You might find a use for it eventually, especially if you get an Amateur Radio license. Your going to have to do research and learn more about radios. As long as it's not stolen property you might even sell it to someone who can use it.
