• 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:

Everyone seems to have different ideas on which ones can be modified. I was wondering if anyone has a new update listing of all scanners to include Uniden, and a 12A9 date code what was the cut off for cell freqs date. thanks to all that help.

There has been nothing new to add to the list for several years now so there is no new and updated list.

Wow cell phone mods. That's like soooo 80's... ;-)
lol soooo 80's. Yeah cell phone hacks, the good ol days. Makes me wanna crank up my pro-2006's and 2005's. Hell I even have autographed copies of the scanner books Bill Cheek wrote. I miss that guy, he passed away a few years back from cancer. Bill was the shiz back in the day, and as far as I'm concerned still is in many ways.

cell mods

The cut off date is 4/1994, anything after this date will be hard since the chip should not have the freqs in it.

the only use for cell band mods now would be if a call goes analog... other than that, not much use from what i understand.

And even then not after '08 when all cell carriers will cease to support analog voice and data. It will ALL be 100% digital.

hmmm interesting news to me :)

well, I guess there is a nice, warm, tingly feeling you get thru your body when you see that you are able to scan the cell bands.... lol :D

Weird!

So gone will be the days of buying that *extended* frequency scanner from the overseas market. Hope that "Newt" doesn't run for Pres. or we may time warp to 1984 again and ban scanners altogether. He was the cause of all this trouble to begin with. ;-)

I thought it was Billy Bob Clinton who banned cell freqs from scanners? Scanners manufactured before 1994 could be modified.
