• 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:

The Pro-51 is not a trunk tracking scanner. You will need a trunk tracking scanner
in order to listen to Huber Heights. They operate on the Montgomery County 800 MHz trunked radio system as in the link posted previously.

How much do you want to spend?
Are you interested in listening to Ohio State Highway Patrol?

The state is using digital voice on a statewide system, you would
need a digital scanner to listen to it and they are the most expensive.
I suggest you click on the "Wiki" link above and once there scroll down
and check out the link to the various brands of scanners available.

You might want to check the Radio Shack section of this forum for operation-specific questions you might have on how to program the Pro-51, or the Yahoo/Google groups may be able to provide support as well. Also, most manufacturers keep online versions of their owners manuals available for downloads.
