• 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:

That Kenwood is a nice rig.

What's that radio in the middle with all the buttons on it?

Good photo, by the way.

Yea, the syntor is the one with no display.

My first repeater was actually 2 SyntorX9000's till I went to the current GR300. Very, very good radios.

Close, boys...that is a Syntor X with the System 90*s control group. 32 channels in 4 groups of 8.

I owned several of these, and they were great radios.

That's really odd. For what Motorola charges for their crap, you'd think they could at least put a display on it.

It's an older radio, circa the 80's, I think. For it's time it was a great preformer, and still is. Get yourself a nice tuned and programmed 110w Syntor and you'll find out why.

I've went to the A7 Spectra family of radios, but still, the Syntor's have been and are great radios.

Most people give Syntor's away, literally, so not quite expensive by any means.

You don't need a display to navigate 32 channels.


Altho I wouldn't call motorola stuff crap, their stuff has served me better than any trunking scanner or ham radio ever could. You should at leat know the quality of one of their most basic level radios - on your HT1000's!! lol
