• 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:

I have a Uniden 996, RS 2096, and recently purchased both the GRE 500 and GRE 600. Although really have not had the 500 and 600 long enough to mess with them that much.
I am one that likes to search or keep "open" the TG's. For that reason, due to the unlimited amount of TG's you can alpha tag, I have come to like the GRE the most.
I have my likes and dislikes on all, but so far, have liked my GRE the best.
