• 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:

Just some pictures of my shack. For Ham equiptment I have a Yaesu Ft-60 portable, Kenwood TM-V71a mobile (using as a base), and a Kenwood TS-820S for HF. For scanners, I have a borrowed RS Pro-95 portable, a RS Pro-163, a Pro-82, and a RS Pro-2037. CBs and FRS I have a Cobra 90 ltd Base that I use to monitor ch 9, a Realistic 479 I use as an audio monitor, and a RS portable that I picked up for 20 bucks at a thrift store, for FRS i have 2 Motorola TS300's. I also have a Motorola MTX-810 on 800mhz, a Motorola Radius P100 on UHF (462.175 to be exact) and a Motorola Minitor 2. In computers I use a Gateway NV78 with a 64-bit Windows 7 home premuim OS, 17" screen, 4GB ram, 500GB hard-drive, bla bla bla, Also I have an HP desktop, with Vista. I have a G5RV strung in the trees for 160m-10m and an AT-230 to tune it to my radio. I also have a dual band vertical stuck to my chimeny, whitch gets me out around 80 miles with 50 watts through my TM-V71a. I am in the basement, and I do preety good with my scanners listening to the county's 800mhz tower a good 5-6 miles away, on their stock, in the house antennas.

You are so busted!! I snipped this out of your bottom picture and blew it up. You seemed to have left out the number "1" from your description!

But Seriously, it is a very nice orderly set up. Please don't let my wife see it!

Happy New Year!

The wrap-around desk is really nice. Hopefully I'll have that in the next place. Then I could leave all the test/build gear in place rather than digging it out and putting it away all the time.
