• 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 was looking to get another scanner just for Mil-Air and was wondering if there was enough traffic to justify getting it. With Alameda and Moffet NAS closed the closest is Travis AFB. I live in Antioch so would I also be able to get McClellan AFB up in Sacramento if I put up an antenna?

I was looking to get the Radio Shack Pro-2052. How is this compared to other scanners, even used scanners, if there is enough traffic to buy one. TIA.

From various sites in the Bay Area I can hear:
Coast Guard Ops
Air Refueling
Travis AFB of course
The occasional patrol flight
Airshows
And of course, the Blues during Fleet Week

Also, you can hear the UHF side of all the ATC channels

I'd say it's worth it.

I have a Pro-95 and Pro-96, I know neither is really tuned for it, but I have input frequencies into them anyway....I live in the bay area (monterey bay) and have only heard a short burst of chatter almost a year ago...nothing else. Does anyone have a milair file for the bay area so I can compare frequencies? Thanks in advance.
