It happened as follows: It's not Halloween yet but I was scanning through military ATC channels in the south of Britain one night at approx. 8.30 pm local time this...

    Loud & Clear DMR in Western Mass

    Does anyone know who is on or around 152.970Mhz? I’ve only heard bits and pieces of what sounds like a talk group used for education communications. Makes me believe it’s is part of a trunk system. The signal is clear in the Berkshire County area as well as into Springfield if I remember correctly

    I'm In Canberra and have a AOR AR-DV1 with the latest firmware update, connected to an AOR SA7000 antenna. I also have a discone antenna. Both are above my roofline. What should I be trying to listen to and at what times? I don't have a listening preference. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

    Will G5 work on a SmartZone system in migration to p25?

    Help me understand the G5 I just came across this device and think it will help me with the problems I have encountered with the RadioShack Pro-668 SCAN. I simply don’t get all the transmissions anymore. Moving on, I like everything about the G5 from durability, size, testimonials, etc. and...

    Easy BCD436HP question?....

    Unlike the 'old' scanners that had a scan button on them, the BCD436HP does not. What I am looking for is what button is it that will continue the scan when the radio has hit on a channel that is not of interest at the time and you just want the scanner to continue the scan. Nothing to do with...

    https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?fccCallsign=WQIJ957 In reference to the above link, what are the extra frequencies used for? The county listing only lists output frequencies, are the other frequencies input frequencies? This seems like it's a trunked system but it's listed as not...

    DMR Reference Question

    When I look through some of my counties listings for DMR, the color code is listed, but then for the TG and SL, it just has "*" next to it instead of the talk group and time slot. What does the asterisks denote? I looked all over the Wiki and could not find any information. Thanks!

    No Signal unless I hit the Function Button

    This is really odd. I have been scanning for years. But have not updated to a new scanner in a while. I decided on the 436HP. About 3 weeks after getting it I had to send it in because I broke the antenna off when I dropped it. Uniden repaired it and sent it back but I have been having the most...

    are you having problems scanning pomona police?

    To all that monitor pomona police: No your scanner is not having problems, pomona is using their orange (encrypted) channel as their temporary dispatch until all the radio are programmed because sadly blue 1 is becoming encrypted as we speak. The process should be finished some time this month...
