• 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:

The scuttlebutt says that the owner's manual is pitiful at best, but the scanner works well enough - should be a good step into the milair world as well, if you're interested in that. Note that it doesn't do P25 (no digital, another words) and no alpha tags (but software can handle that - you'll see and log tags on your PC).

We have a decent Wiki page on the radio here...

it might be worthwhile to join the 898 yahoo group listed there so you can pick up tips and tidbits that the horrible owner's manual doesn't mention.....73s Mike
