• 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:

I am looking to buy a new scanner; I have a BC-760XL but would like to buy a new scanner with more sophisticated features. I would like a faster scan rate, proximity scan over ride (if it exists), a scanner that displays PL or CTCSS codes (if it exists), and at least 500 frequency memory.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
Jim

Are you looking for a Radioshack or a Uniden? Uniden has the BCD396T, BCD996T, and the BCT15. All are very "feature rich". Radioshack has the PRO-97, which I have, and I can say is a great scanner. It has signal stalker (scans for close signals), skywarn, 1000 channels, LTR trunking, CTCSS/DCS, backlit keypad, etc. If you want a base, the PRO-2055 is the base model of the PRO-97.

Hope this helps, ;)
