• 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:

This is a weird request so hear me out completely.

Looking into buying this for ham radio use. I just got my license, and this was recommended to me as a decent entry level.

Im also a volunteer firefighter.

I saw this can monitor the 800mhz band. Can I use this to monitor ONLY that band for my fire comms?

I fully understand I cant and should not transmit on this band. It would be for observation only. Id only be able to transmit on ham frequencies.
