• 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:

Im purley speculating here by looking at currently available Uniden hardware, I was looking at the MYSTIC handheld marine radio with GPS and I own the 996T, it makes me wonder if the next high end Uniden handheld will incorperate GPS in the radio, they have all the technology spread out in their other products and it seems it can be done quite easily, anybody have an opinion on this??

I really don't see the need for GPS in scanners, but I suppose in the US it might be a useful idea.

I'd much prefer to have an audio recorder built in (see Icom R20) but using something like the Ogg vorbis codec (I think it's GPL'd). And also have some add-on storage, so you're not limited to whatever Uniden put into the radio.
