• 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:

Unless you're in the vicinity of an area (like a hospital) where the vehicular repeaters are used a lot, you're out of luck without buying a newer scanner.

Close but no cigar, the BC245XLT would be the earliest model of that brand capable of tracking the Bell Fleetnet systems analog users only. Unless that scanner is capable of being controlled by a computer, then you could have Trunker track the system for you with a second receiver.

Your pretty much in the same boat with the Pro95, it won't track a VHF Motorola Type II system.

And you can include the PRO-93 in that category also. The PRO-92 will
do the analog part but I'm not really impressed by it.

If you're only interested in the analog stuff the 246 is a great little radio.
If you are in or near Barrie though, you might want to consider picking up a 396 or hunting for a 250 or 296 used--make sure either of these have the digital card in them (behind the battery pack) before you turn over your cash. Reason being if you are interested in Barrie police or fire they are digital so in order to listen you'll need a digital scanner.
