• 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:

Nice set of scanners you have there, and good job on the pics. You must buff your desk LOL
Is that your baby in that little picture?
Take care

The one on the left closest to the shelf unit is not a scanner, its Dual-band Amateur Radio, the Yaesu FT-50r it has the slinder long comet dualband antenna. The one closest to the Mac is an ICOM IC-R5 wideband receiver, the one in the middle is an AOR AR-8000 wideband receiver.

IC-R2 doesn't look like an R5, if you have an R2 ;)

R2 was my first serious scanner - still going strong after numerous cases of abuse. Namely:
Dropping 5ft onto concrete + bouncing.
Dropping into 5 inches of water right past the SMA socket (pulled out of water, was still receiving local PD!).
Getting dropped at least once a day.
I even reversed polarity on it once, it died, sent it back and got it back fixed :D

Thanks for the offer, but I do have some spare knobs. I just keep them off because I'm tired of looking for them everytime the kids pull them off.
