• 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:

I've got a Uniden BC796D and BC396T for digital monitoring and a BCT8 and SC230 for analog. I've also got a Grundig YB400PE wideband radio and a Midland Weather Radio with the front display.

As hard as it has been, I've resisted the urge to buy the 996T and BCT15 and stick with what works for now. A simple but nice setup I think!

I wish I could have an external antenna for everything, but the association rules don't allow it.

Do you have an attic? The association doesn't need to know you have a scanner antenna. :)

Search this Forum for attic antennas.

I like the map,I have one of my city on the wall behind my computer/scanner desk,with the police beats highlighted,and fire stations numbered and at night I have it lit with a fluorescent blacklight which in a dark den/office at night the highlight markings glow in the dark and can been seen easy.I have my scanners,computers and TV in my den/office and at night watch TV or use computer with only the blacklight,or one red light on.I guess this comes from when I was a dispatcher and the "Radio Room" only had red lighting.I like your setup............

Nice setup!

I agree on the attic thing. I've actually surprised myself when it comes to attics. I was in mine and found a spot that seems to hear just as good as the antenna outside. This was with a yagi of course, but I was quite amazed.

Hey Mike pic looks great!. Ya go for the antenna in the attic if you can't put one outside. Beams work great up there.
Take care
