• 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:

Nice clean installation. A couple of questions, you say there are two radios mounted in the console but I only see one. Am I missing something? You seem to have a radio mounted in what looks like the glove compartment, would that be the second radio? Second, the console seems very large for one radio. Are you planning on putting additional radios in it?

You really have to ask that? How many of us own more than one scanner or radio. lol

Looks good I like the fact there is plenty of room to grow. How does the portable hold up riding along down like gravel roads would be my question, they can be very rough at times.

that is a remote head with the two radios mounted behind the back seat. The portable holds up pretty good. It kind of locks in to the charger when you drop it in. Normally it is only in the charger when it needs to be charged. I'm saving room for a scanner so I can listen to the trunked system where I live
