• 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:

I'd still love to have a handheld scanner that would do am/fm/sw and atleast most of the public service stuff and do it well. If it has to be a bit big and a bit heavy so be it. When the BR330 first came out I thought maybe that would do but from the accounts I've read here and elswhere I don't think so. The a.m. and SW reception so so at best.

You don't mention trunktracking , so maybe you would be interested in an AOR or ICOM product.
If you require TT , then carry two radios , a Uniden TT and one of those others mentioned.

Shortwave requires a l-o-n-g antenna. It's hard to get a 66' Windom on a portable. BTW you need USB and LSB also. Good Luck.
