• 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:

WOW That is one super cool setup. I really like the two keyboard wide desk with a bookcase in just the right spot. I could spend hours sitting in your chair like a kid in a candy store I want everything I see. My hats off to you. Its a great Setup.

Thats a really nice setup,I like how you setup the scanners.
Is that a sound mixer in the first picture beneath the ham radio?

Very nice indeed! Too bad you can't monitor the Florida Highway Patrol with any of those scanners!

Update

Thank You everybody for the kind replies. I worked in a candy store many moons ago and it feels like I'm back there. No it's not a Ham radio, the big radio is a Icom IC-R9000 unblocked receiver...it does DC to Light exceptionally well. Yes I have an audio mixer and it's on the opposite side of the room. I use it for music, however all of the scanners can be monitored from there too. The antennas consist of an Arrow 2 meter model CB-148 up 38' and below it is a home brew VHF Quagi. I use these on the VHF airband with band pass filters and frequency specific mast mounted pre-amps. The other antenna is a SDL UHF military airband antenna up 30' with band pass filter and mast mounted preamp too. (that's what's in the white PVC tubes) There is also a home brew 50' center fed dipole for HF monitoring. I'll upgrade that soon.

KEL :)

Can you tell us a bit more about the audio equipment? I'm trying to figure out what to look into for my setup. Your setup looks great.
