• 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 want to upgrade to a digital trunking scanner, I have an older Radio Shack Pro95 model now.

I like the GRE PSR800 and the Uniden HomePatrol scanners. I would like to be able to take the scanner with me when I travel. Will either one of these automatically start receiving frequencies as I travel down teh highway or will I have to program lists in for my routes?

Thanks for the help and advice in advance!

New scanner

I don"t know anything about the PSR800 , but the Home Patrol can be connected t a GPS and will then automatically change frequencies for the area your traveling in or through. It works very well , almost seemlessly. It does pause occasionally (not very often and not very noticable) to change data bases for the region your in. i use mine on the road all the time and I'm extremely impressed with its performance...

You can read about it here.

PSR-800 - The RadioReference Wiki

HomePatrol-1 - The RadioReference Wiki

Both are good and from what I have read the 800 is fairly easy to program.

The HP-1 you can just put a zipcode in and it will bring the different agencies in the area that are available to listen to.
