Its the purpose of this thread, to introduce ourselves to each other & hopefully make new acquaintances. Although the thread appears to be used for other random topics from time to timeNot intending to drag an old thread out of the mud, but actively monitoring KSICS from Hutchinson on a Pro-652. Also have a BCT15X monitoring analog alongside it. Been hooked on scanners for 25 years, owned many of them over the years.
Yeah, but I'm in no way new to this site, as you can see by my join date. I've been all over the midwest for working and living, but Hutchinson has always been home to me.Its the purpose of this thread, to introduce ourselves to each other & hopefully make new acquaintances.

Welcome!Hello Everyone! I was born and raised in Hutchinson (Reno County) I currently live in Johnson County, KS. I am active in Amateur Radio in Johnson County which influences my scanner listening. However when the scanner is on I listen to Johnson County and KCMO on MARRS system. I also listen to KSICS towers in Olathe, Wyndotte County, and Douglas County occasionally. If anyone is in the area stop by repeater 145.290 (-) PL 151.4 and say hello. My call sign is KU0FAN.
How's that scanner working here? I bought the RS Pro-652 and Pro-106 last year and while I am somewhat satisfied with the digital decode, the VHF and UHF here leave a lot to be desired when compared to my 5-year old BC15X I still use from time to time. I mostly monitor all the surrounding counties (Rice, Stafford, and Pratt) which are still on analog, and here recently I have started to pick up some stuff out of Barton County and up in Salina from downtown Hutch (I live next to the Amtrak station. My antennas face north, which I feel helps a ton. Maybe we can compare notes sometime or chew the fat.Hutchinson ks. here. Just getting started with scanner bcd996p2.
