• 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:

Nissan Frontier Radio Install

Aug 13, 2005
Recently picked up a Nissan Frontier. I'm in the process of installing radios. Right now I kinda just "thrown" in a 110 Watt UHF MCS2000 that I use for 70cm ham and for the fire dept. A more complete install is going to be done. I have a Yaesu FT8800 that is going in at a later date. Do not mind the mag mount, that is just temporary until I get everything in. Two holes will be drilled for NMO mounts.

Nice job! I have monitored 446.000 for 15+ years and I can count on one hand the number of times I have heard it used! Just no where near as popular as 146.520!

Propagation on 70cm just isn't up to par with 2M. I enjoy monitoring 2M simplex in my area and periodically try to switch over to 70cm after making contact on 2M to see if we can still maintain contact. More often than not, it's a no go. The most likely exception is if I find someone engaged in SOTA activity.
