• 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:

2012 Chevy Impala Handhelds Mounted

2012 Chevy Impala with the Handhelds Mounted. Only clip mounted on a Lido Mounts Goose Neck and plate. The Goose Neck is mounted solid and does not move or shake while driving. The Lido Mounts Plate comes with receiving clips for standard belt clips BUT does a "button" female receptacle that the BCD436HP clips right into.
Both Handhelds easily come off and come with me. Both are powered from lighter plugs and have external antennas.
Uniden BCD436HP
Runs all trunking for my area of Fort Lauderdale/Miami
Motorola Smartzone II
P25 Phase 1 and 2

"Baojunk" UV-82HP Receiver/Transceiver
Monitors all UHF Conventional for my agency. It is programmed for transmitting, the external mic is not pictured. Receives quite well through the entire area.
Not pictured is my Aviation Transceiver ICOM IC-A6 which I will sometimes switch out with the Baofeng.

External antennas are standard 800Mhz Scanner and 1/4 Wave UHF. Yup, I'm too lazy to drill holes for NMO.
