    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:

What is going to be the cheapest UHF programmable radio from Motorola I can get? I want it to be new but cheap. Thanks. I saw the BPR40 and the CP150... they look like the cheaper line but what's the bottom line cheapest? Thanks!

Cheap Motorola Radios

Depends on how many channels you need and how much power. I bought 16 CP200 VHF radios for our rescue squad four years ago. Some of the guys like them, some of the guys wanted an HT750 type radio that we could not afford. Actioncommunications.com has good prices. I am wanting a new UHF handie talkie, but need more channels than the CP200 has. The new Icom F43GS looks good at 256 channels and less than $300. by the way, the CP200 has only one scan list. Thats why some of my guys don't like it.
