My uncle worked for NE Game & Parks I was always amazed with all of the antennas and radios on his truck. He had all low band SO & NSP and vhf with a telephone dial to dial the right repeater. He had a 8 channel crystal scanner in his house I was always glued to. I love the the 8 flashing lights, not much to hear in the sand hills, His wife was also a dispatcher for the SO.When I was 12 he got a 20 channel RS programmable scanner and gave me the 8 channel I was hooked.And since then have had may scanners. 18 joined Army went into RAT but that changed fast to satellite. Lost interest in the scanner. Got back to the states and got back into into them. Here in FTC around 97 I started to see a blue patrol car that said Federal police on it, so I started searching fed band UHF because of the antenna on it and found 410.8 talking about the post office, fed police at the time on the wed site was listed under USSS. After 911 traffic increased on that freq. One day I ran accross RR and found the tread Fed Protective Service I got excited I logged on to the site as 2scanners but I change my user name I thought I pissed some people off. I did not want to make people mad. with my ignorance, I love this hobby as much as everyone else here. I have learned so much here. Hope to seen everyone and the meeting. I will be the quiet guy with not much to say until I get adjusted.
