• 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:

Here's my installation. I removed the factory radio/CD and replaced it with the BC-996T on top of a Sony with CD. The bezel around the 996T is made so that it works well in a single DIN installation but with a dual setup I should have used an FM radio. I had to trim the 996T's bezel on the bottom to make room for the Sony's head to swing down. The GPS is a Garmin 12XL which will feed both the BC-996T and the Kenwood D-700 (for APRS).

Well, The TMD-700 has a Larson 2m/70cm glass mount. I've been suprised at how well it does and what good reports I've received on it.

On the 996T I cheated! I put in a scanner/fm spliter. The 996T is sharing the factory antenna which is a fixed mount, onthe right front fender. It seems to be doing OK. I havn't done any comparsons yet. When I do I'm afraid that I'll want to put a dedicated scanner antenna back up.
