• 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:

It's time for our first scanner meet for 2010!


Location:Lil Riccis Ny Pizza (Located in Centennial)
Address: 15352 E Ida Dr Unit H, Aurora, CO, 80015
Date: February 28th (Sunday)
Time: 12pm-4pm

Just a friendly reminder, pizza and drinks are served during the event. Luke only asks $5.00 per person for all you care to eat and drink. If pizza isn’t your thing, or your craving bread sticks with pasta, his restaurant does have a full menu to order from, just ask.


For those of you who have not attended our meets in the past, this is a wonderful event where members of Radioreference.com and other radio enthusiast can get together and meet each other, and talk about scanners and whatever else comes up. Scanists with new radios are welcome to ask as many questions as they can. We all learn from each other and this face time with each other is invaluable.

For those who have attended prior meetings, give us some feedback here! If you have an idea, share it with us! We want to make these meetings fun and informative at the same time.

Here is some advice /feedback from prior meetings. Start writing down your questions and bring them, along with a pad of paper and pen to write down the answers. The most common heard statement is, “gee, I have so many questions, but I can’t remember them right now.” Also, if you can, bring your laptop that you program your scanner with. Many questions deal with how to program scanners using software. I can’t express how much easier it is to help someone by walking them through their software while showing them what to do vs. just telling them. Of course, many of us bring our computers to help program scanners, along with showing off how Pro96Com works.

Well from our side of the table Luke was able to get me off to a great start with Pro96.com. Looking forward to finding some of the unknowns.

We also talked about Lakewood's P25 site and how it will probably not be until summer til we see any action on it. I believe that Wheat Ridge is still pending their P25 capable radio's.

There was also discussion amongst us and Tom about the new freq's assigned to Arvada/Westy and how they may be used. I think someone is going to monitor the system to see if there is any activity.

Great Pizza and fun times.

I thought we had a great meet.

A decent turnout for this time of the year, I know some were concerned about the weather.

I think all questions got answered. Got to see the new GRE "SD card" scanner, pretty cool. When the digital version comes out, put me on the list for a few of those new toys.

Thank you to everyone who attended. I hope you got enough to eat and had a good time. See everyone in the spring :)

I had a great time! It was nice putting faces to names, and I now have a new favorite Pizza place! That was great food! It is a long drive, but I think I will take my kids there for a special treat!
