• 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 All! i just found this site, and am enjoying reading everything. Long story short, i currently have a very OLD UHF\VHF scanner, and I've stopped hearing everything on it lately. I'm currently looking for a scanner that can scan Fleetnet here in Saskatchewan. If it can also scan the new RCMP system, that'd be great too....but it's not a necessity. I have NO idea where to begin, or what to look for, and any help would be appreciated.

Thanks In Advance!

Hi there trevorvw. I think a PSR 500 from GRE or a PRO-96 from Radio Shack may be the way for you to go in Sask. You will have to bring one in from the U.S.A. at a cost of about $600 .

Welcome trevor.

I have to chime in here and strongly disagree with the 600.00 comment , If you look at the classified section theres a pro 96 for 275.00 right now I paid 225.00 for my pro 96.
If and when you get one I well help you set it up for rcmp and fleetnet ...

Isn't SK Fleetnet the one that can't be trunktracked (but can be voice decoded in conventional mode)?
Fleetnet in sask. is easily trunked with any trunktracker ... the new rcmp is the one that has to be scanned in conventional mode ... and in rural areas its fantastic , citys can get pretty confusing with 10 times the traffic ...

My bad, sorry. I'm not used to having multiple trunk systems worth monitoring.. my main interest is public safety and there's just the one out here in Alberta. ;)

You mean, "there's just the one out here in Alberta", at this time.
