    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:

Thanks Kb9tyc. I guess I forgot to put in there what I was looking for. Will the model 103 work well with racing? That is what I"m going to use it for mostly.

That one I found does 1MHz - 3GHz so it would cover what you are looking for just fine. I have a Radio Shack one I bought about 10 years ago.

You probably should do some searching and you may be able to come up with one cheaper.

You're joking, right?
Lets see, just off the top of my head it could have been a frequency counter or a spectrum analyzer, but a don't think a toaster would work. :roll:

I am going to ask a stupid question here, do these find the frequency of a radio it is transmitting on when you are near and it is transmitting?
