• 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:

Mark is quite right - the only models that will work with the Montgomery county system are as follows - and we have Wiki pages on each of these models, so you can do your research right from here...

Handhelds (RS) PRO-96
(Uniden) BC296D (discontinued), BCD396T
Base/Mobiles (RS) PRO-2096
(Uniden) BCD996, BC796D(discontinued)

The Uniden BC250 and 785 will do digital only with an optional card (BC25i) - which is getting harder and harder to find. These 2 radios will not be supported by Uniden when rebanding finally happens, so I would avoid these 2 radios for hearing 800 Mhz Moto digital systems.

The SC230, BC246, BR330T, and BCD15 will not work with digital systems. Neither will the RS PRO-97 or 2055.
