• 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:

Hi Crista,
Never did buy on line because they are a 5 mins drive away for me. But a friend did order from them that is in Vancouver and got his item pretty quickly. But that is just one example. Maybe other people from the States ordered from them and can give you there story.
I buy my stuff from the States now due to the dollar LOL:D
Take care

I used this:

So I figured HEy I can actually save a few bucks on the toys I can't find locally..:cool:

I have been looking through the web and All seems well thus far.. they seem SUPER friendly which is a plus.
BUt ya know I like being thourough..
Furthermore, I Don't except whatever to come like two hours after They recived my payment
Buut I do hope they would ship it credble IE whomever they use doesn't toss it around, opens it and/or worse STEALS it lol:roll:

Basically I trust them now
It's do I trust the actual shippers??? lol
99% of things I will buy at Scannersunlimited in San Carlos,CA
BUt there are few things that Scannesrunliited doesn't /can't have due to US being tight lol

Hi Christa,

Check out www.durhamradio.com too. They're very good to deal with.

Exchange isn't as good as it was about 7 or 8 months ago. Last check I made it was around 12 cents on the dollar. Back in Feb it was almost 30. It is making it better for us Canadians to shop though.

Happy shopping,whichever side of the border you choose.

Sorry man, made in America is extinct.
Looking at my radios:
Pro 46 Manufactured in Philippines
Pro 43 Made in Japan
246 Made in China
Just look around your house, vcr, tv, phones, cellphones, the computer you're reading this on...the list goes on and on. I still have many of my childhood toys that my nephews like playing with now. Rock solid toys that have stood the test of time, Made in USA ! Where are kids toys made now...China !!! If your cars vin number starts with 2, it's made in Canada. Next time you're eating at Jack in the Box, ask where the beef is from, it may very well be Canadian beef, eh ! But what would some minimum wage worker know anyway. I'm with you all the way. I prefer to buy from Canadian retailers, but the good things we like to buy just aren't made in our countries anymore. If you wanna buy American, buy an apple pie. Don't eat it 'a la mode', cuz then it's French !!!

What American made radio gear is out there sport or for that matter electronics in general, I take it you don't own a computer, tv or for that matter a car because the majority of the parts in American Assembled cars comes from foreign companies. It's a global world time to wake up. The only things actually made in the US are burgers a fries and even there the Beef and Potatoes probably come from a foreign country.
