    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:

I was looking to get into scanning usb for military frequencies and such. I have no idea on where to start as far as a unit goes. I was wondering if anyone could give me info on price and quality. I dont want to spend a fortune, as I dont know what to expect as far as reception and content. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Your cheapest and best route is probably the Sangean ATS-909. A little over $200, but good SSB performance for a portable. I had one a few years ago and was really impressed, but I found it too small to work with. My Sony 2010 is about the smallest I will use in a portable....
