• 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:

Since you're in Salem and located in a metro area, I'd say definitely go for a trunked scanner, with a digital model if you're able to. A lot of the urban areas in Oregon are on trunked systems, with digital in the future. At the moment many budgets are on hold so you could probably manage with a conventional trunked scanner for a bit. I think something in the $100-200 range from Radio Shack, GRE, or Uniden would work for you.
