• 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:

Hello Everyone.

I will be the first to admit i do not know to much about scanners and freq. yet.

I have been reading up on it alot recently and this is my dilema.

I want a scanner which i can put in my car that will pick up all the trunked police and fire in howard county. but i also want to be able to pick up pg. county fire department too.
they currently are running in the i believe 490-530.

any suggestions on what to look at.

until then. i will continue to read up and understand this stuff better.

Only $1000.... That would'nt even cover the down payment on what I'd LIKE to have... How about an AOR AR-ONE with a NIL-JON SUPER M on a 50ft. tower! I figure about $5000. + a permission slip from the FBI should do it! lol
Well, I can dream can't I?
