• 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:

I live near a mountain with 50 to 100 different towers and stuff and I want to get the most out of my radio but no losing anything. Im trying to attach a photo of the mountain but im not having a lottla luck, They have Microwave towers, cell Towers, Trunk towers, am/fm radio tower, dmr and nxdn towers

Buy one TRX-2 and one BCD536HP and then evaluate which one works best for you at your unique location and setup. Both will probably be usefull to you but at different frequencies or systems.

I believe that is VERY SOUND advice especially in this particular situation. IIRC the OP had problems in the past with PRO-197s having extensive intermod and signal overload at his location on some band(s) while his Uniden BCD996XTs worked much better for him at his location on the same band(s).

When you buy the BCD536 it would be a good idea to buy the PROSCAN software.

PROSCAN will let you control the BCD536 from a PC with a wireless connection. PROSCAN also lets you listen to the audio on the same wireless connection, so you can have your Uniden in one room and your PC or laptop in a different room with no wires connecting them allowing you to listen in both rooms.

I am definitely one of the buy everything and see what works best people! My closet full of unused new gear is testament to that, need to do an eBay sell off of the ones that didn't make the cut. I think when you are going to live with your new $500 scanner, taking a $50 hit on selling a very slightly used new loser scanner on eBay is well worth it, rather than being stuck with something you may never be 100% sure works best for you.
