• 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:

#1 the price is a little high but ok #2 It is a great scanner I own 2 of them #3 They are kind of hard to program but read the manual and you will have no problem. You should be able to get a refurbushed one on e-bay for $69 + ship I think sillyname48 sells them there if he has any listed.

One of the first things you should determine before purchasing a scanner is what are you going to be listening to? Your location, the departments you wish to monitor, their frequencies, and modes, etc all will play an important role in choosing the best fitting scanner.

So how about some more info? Where are you? What would you like to monitor?
