• 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:

Don't you just hate the anticipation of knowing that you just received a package at home, but you're at work? In my case, I had ordered a BR330T as I'm returning to the hobby. Last week I dug my old RS Pro 30 out of storage and started playing with it, and determined I needed something better for the Seattle area since it doesn't cover trunking (and MANY other features I'd find useful). So after reading up on scanners, I chose the BR330T. Of course, even when I do get home I won't be able to "play" with it much, as I'm heading out of town. I'll be taking it with me, but I won't have time to figure out how to program it. Here's hoping the preinstalled freqs are going to work for me. I figure it can't be any worse than trying to find something to listen to on my Pro 30.

Waiting, waiting, waiting.....

At my house, UPS come usually between 6 and 7 PM so it is hard to wait knowing it is out for delivery. I usuaully have it sent to work since they usually have us as the first stop after the priorotiy deliveries.

If you think that's rough, I have a couple nice new Li-Ion Astro Saber batteries that got delivered on Monday morning at 9:30 am at my house, but I am unable to go home and retrieve them until Saturday as I am about 45 minutes away at Band Camp (EMU) and can't go and enjoy them, I know how much I'll enjoy having a light weight 2" tall 1800Mah lithium ion battery on my radio rather than a heavy, tall, nicad. that makes the radio about a foot tall. Good luck with your scanner, since it's 5pm now, I'm sure you'll be home shortly/are home enjoying it right now.

5pm for you, 2pm for me on the west coast. But that's ok, I already planned to go home early to get ready to leave town. So I should have it in my hands shortly!

josh, tell me you didn't do anything with a flute at band camp LOL ! .
First, I apologize for the hijacking of this thread, lol.

But, nothing that involoved the flute, but rather the flute players that I have been cursed with getting involved witih.

BTW, I play Sousaphone.... we just party and drink beer, and I usually hear about any pending breakups via the radio :twisted:

I've displayed pix of my dorm-room setup here on the board in the past.

Last week I was waiting for my 796D to come back from Uniden after they replaced the Vol/Squelch knob that had become stuck together and they sent it through Airborne, with a tracking number for me to see it's whereabouts. Well I watched as it sat for 2 days in there Waco, TX depot, then it finally get to town and was "Out for delivery" and I waited all day, and I waited and I waited (work nights so I was home all day) and finally about 8 PM I checked the tracker and it said "delivered 2 PM" to the local post office 2 blocks away! WTF, so I had to wait another day for the post office to bring it out. That sucked, let me tell you.
