• 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:

Can you be more specific?

What radio manufactures?
What radio models?
Portable?
Mobile?

If your looking at Motorola, I'd check out the Waris/Pro series radios, HT750/1250/1550 or CDM750/1250/1550. I'm not a real big fan of those series - but that's personal. They work great for a lot of people. You'll want to find one that has an "S" in the model number, for example:

AAH01SDH.......AN

That character that's bold will be the band that your looking for in that series.

Look at www.batlabs.com for more model number decoding.

There are models of the HT750 and HT1250 that have a 450-512 mhz frequency range. They aren't too popular with ham operators since the low end is 450 mhz. One of the guys in my squad bought a HT750 in the range you are looking for last year. You just need to find them. The bat labs site can help with the model numbers.
