• 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:

new to scanning and need help getting started

i just recently purchased a radio shack pro-96 and i want to set it up to scan metro police and THP frequencies. i have never used something like this so i am completely in the dark with what all the buttons do and all the lingo. i do a lot of highway driving and in conjunction with a radar detector and laser shifters i believe that a police radio scanner would fit right in perfectly.
