• 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:

This is a good way to get a bunch of monitoring ability in a small package. Just testing right now, going to replace foam with better fitting medium density foam this week. Also adding provision for external power via cig. lighter I also have a larger case that holds 3 bases (full hook-up) and transports 4 Handhelds as well with external power, antenna and speakers.

Awesome! Nice work!

Looks very "Mission Impossible".

Would be just the the setup for an airshow.

Please post more pictures when you have it finished.

Regards, Commscanaus.

This is the small Airshow case. The bigger case runs on a battery booster pack with a BC-996,and 2-Pro-2055's

nice job.

I've seen aluminum briefcases at truck stops for about 25=30 bucks that would work nicely like that.

I have been using it as it is for now. I haven't made it to the place where I buy the foam. I am currently working on an installation in my '84 Vette. Looking for just the right glass mount antenna to modify.
Not much room in there to mount radios, so I will probably use two hand-helds in holders, with amplified speakers behind the seats.
