• 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 all. I bought my first scanner in 1976, a Sears crystal scanner with (Oh my!) 10, thats right, 10 channels. Since then I've owned a dozen or so different scanners, most of them during the 80's & 90's. The last one I bought was around 2000 and was the new digital scanner from HRO, cost about $800.00. As time went on scanners became trickier to use (for me, anyway), the whole trunking thing confused the hell out of me and with sites like radioreference.com I transitioned to computer listening instead. Recently North Law channel has disappeared from radio reference and my scanner app and I'm thinking about getting another scanner. The only one I have left is a Bearcat BC895XLT, missing the antenna and is probably worthless today. 2 questions...1.What happened to law north, why did it disappear? 2. What would be a fairly simple scanner to "relearn" on? I never got my Ham license though I was pretty into it back in the 80's, so ham equip. is out of the question. Any suggestions?

Thank you KMA, I didn't know if we just lost the feed or if there was a major change to San Diego county radio system. Gonefishn - that looks perfect, a little pricey, I'll have to start saving. Thank you gentlemen.
