• 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 am thinking about purchasing the uniden home patrol for my house. Is it as easy as taking it out of the box and its all set or is it complicated like the last uniden i had with trunking

Thanks
Mark

Id like to add

Id like to add 6 and 7

6. Select services types (ex law dispatch)
7.Select the range in which to listen.(ex 10 miles)
hit listen!Poof!
Get a nice outdoor antenna and you'll be set I recommend the comet GP-15,it blows away a discone.
Its a cool scanner,if you like loud though,get an amplified speaker.
Whats nice is you can discover other things you wouldnt normally listen to,like before I had this
I didnt listen to Railroads,now I do!

Yup, it's pretty easy to use, can't get much easier! The things to watch are your Range and ATTN. Not enough range and you may not hear what you want. Turn on ATTN and you may not hear anything so be carefull not to hit that one!
And for more info try this site: HomePatrol there is a forum there under Community too for any questions you may have.
