• 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,
I would like to purchase a portable scanner for the San Francisco/Oakland area. Anyone have any recommendations for scanners in $250.00 range.
Thank You
Bill

Bill, I'm going to make my first response to question that you should post in the California forum further down the forums page.
My next response is that it seems San Francisco and Oakland are investing in the P-25, digital format. You may want to check out the RR database for both areas. San Francisco seems to be going to TDMA X2, which for the time being can supposedly be monitored by the PSR-800. This radio will work with all analog conventional frequencies, analog trunked systems, and digital trunked systems.
Again, post in the CA forum. You will get a more informed answer there:)
HTH,
Larry
