• 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:

Did this a coupe of years ago but never got round to sharing it here.

The car didn't come with the console, but found one on eBay for $20!

So here goes :

Looks like a crown vic. That's a nice setup. I'd love to have scanners in my car.

I'm curious what models those all are. For Uniden models I see a BCD996T/XT/P2 (which I can't tell) a BCT15X, A BC335C? and looks like a BC125AT. I am even more curious of the Motorola scanners...
They all pull multiple duties.

2 x BCT15X typically monitoring public safety EDACS stuff. Initially I had them on 800 MHz low profile NMO antennas, but hated the VHF performance when using them for federal and aviation. Now have both connected to Larsen tri band antennas (150/450/800) and performance is much better across the board. So much so I removed the 5/8 wave VHF antenna!

I have a 996XT to go in, but haven't got round to it yet.
The crappy Bearcat will be coming out. I hate it. Poor audio & performance, but I only paid $25CAD. It monitors 1 single frequency 95% of the time : the local air ambulance UHF repeater.

The crap bearcat will be replaced by a Motorola CDM1250 which is programmed and ready to go.

The Yaesu does tx on Amateur duty (2m & 70cm). However it also does a lot of airband monitoring. I really like the dual RX with audio ducking.

Handheld Uniden scanner is just for grab & go, same with the UV-82. I buy a number of two way radios at different sites, so these radios get used for close call and to test the reception of the radio I am buying.

As for the faceplates; that was the original plan, then started enjoying the cubby hole it made available.
