• 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:

Does anyone know of an electronics store in North Florida (even Central Florida) that sells Uniden scanners in-store?

I live in Jacksonville and I am considering the BC396T as my first digital scanner.

I like being able to just walk in a store and look at a product that I might buy maybe a couple of times before I actually purchase it (in other words, window shop) the same as I've done with all my Radio Shack scanners and antennas. Just one of my quirks, I guess.

I might add this question to those of you who monitor digital talkgroups in Jacksonville:
Do you feel it's worth buying a $500 scanner to listen to digital?

I know the shear amount of features that a BC396T has makes it worth the purchase but how much time to you spend listening to digital stuff as opposed to everything else?
