• 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:

Hello fellow scanners. Right now I have the Radio Shack Pro-97 and Pro-2055 scanners. Both of them can receive up to 1300 MHZ. My question is I have seen some scanner's on the market that go to 2000 MHZ or 2.0 GHZ and even some that go over 3000 MHZ or 3.0 GHZ. My question is why would you need a scanner that can receive higher than 1300 MHZ is there really anything good in that range to listen to. If anyone can help me out please let me know, because it seems that most if not all of your police, fire & ems frequencies can be found between 25 - 1300 MHZ.

There is some ham radio in those bands, along with microwave transmissions.

Cordless phones (usually spread spectrum and/or digital) at 2.4 and 5.8 GHz. Bluetooth and 802.11 at 2.4 GHz. Nothing really worth listening to.
