• 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:

The Appalachians - Next to the tent and campfire.
Scanners behind a desk close together , with the coax going out the same hole to the antenna farm outside.

Seperate speakers on the individual scanners, with the speakers apart so you will know what scanner is being talked on , or label the speakers when you set them apart ( yes, you can get confused ) - TV screen on opposite wall in case of a world event.


Scanners :

Shortwave capable scanner for AM broadcast
A " Cheapie " scanner to listen to local traffic
One scanner to " Search bands " , listen to ajoining municipalitys.
And the one expensive scanner for MILAIR - Satellite - 800 mhz and ect.
The "Bug Out " hand held next to the door of the house.

Unless you are really rich...and have all your radio monitoring , signal catches on the computer :)

Nice setup though.
