• 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:

Somewhere in this room. Right now, you're very col
Lucky find! I've been all over the pawn shops hoping to find a similar deal on a PRO-106 but no dice. All the scanners they seem to have are ancient - not even trunking models. :(

Year ago, I got a 16 channel Uniden base scanner at a thrift store for $5 once. That was pretty epic. :)

Awesome! I picked up my 396xt for $75 last June at a pawn shop. Bought one for $350 used on Amazon a few weeks before and luckily still had a few days left to return when I found this one.

I don't think the pawn shop had a clue about value since the model number isn't noted on the outer case. They're not known for giving their stuff away... but sometimes you get lucky!
