• 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:

KEEP IT. What you have there is the FIRST consumer scanner of receiving digital signals.
Even without the digital card that c=scanner is no slouch performance wise. The 250 is a really good radio with higher sensitivity than my 396.
Don't get me wrong sensitivity isn't everything, but is counts for a lot in th scanner world.
I keep mine as a backup to th 396. You never know when you will really need to monitor more than one digital frequency at a time.
Hopfully the next generation of uniden HT will have dual receivers taking care of this problem of only being able to monitor one frequency at a time.
In the mean time KEEP that 250 it is a good radio.
