• 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:

there's very few brick and mortar retailers left that sell scanners and radios, whats your favorite one (and link them if you can!) lets show some love to em! :)
Yes, hands down, it has to be Glenn Cohen's Scanners Unlimited in San Carlos. Note that he is currently "Closed For Vacation, Re-Opening Tuesday, July 18th"

Ham Radio Outlet, with stores in Oakland, Sunnyvale, Burbank, Anaheim, and San Diego is also worth checking out. While scanners aren't their primary products, they do have a good selection of stuff, and a couple of their people are "scannerheads."
