On October 11, 2018 I clicked the Buy Now button on Amazon purchasing a Uniden BC75XLT. I bought the scanner because I got the weird idea "if different agencies are sending frequencies through our head we should be able to listen to them". (I know now that is false because of encryption, save it for a new thread). We all come from different backgrounds and I can guarantee most of us did not get into radios for the same reason I did. With that in mind, what got you interested in radios or public safety?
