• 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:

Any of the Motorolas. I use a Moto GP300 to scan the FRS stuff in the shack. If you want to work a GMRS repeater, you'll need a commercial radio.

But if you are looking for simplex only, reconsider going to a place like Gander Mountain and getting one of the high end Motorola 22-channel GMRS/FRS radios. That way you don't have to hook your radio up to a computer to change the freqs or the PL.

I had a Motorola HT-1000, 5-Watt UHF. I had 15 channels programmed for GMRS/FRS, and one channel "receive only" for the Macomb County Sheriff. It worked great! I wished I had never sold it!

where around here would i go about getting radios programed?
Many times the people selling them can program them for you. Sometimes free, but the average is around $25.00. There are some "RR" members that might be able to help as well. The important thing is that if you have any channels programmed for Public Safety, make sure they are receive only, with transmit disabled.
