Nice clean setup. You pipe your scanner audio through those nice speakers? That would sound sweet.

I rarely use the speakers, but that is a good idea. I am going to try it now.
FULL DISCLOSURE: my desk is rarely that clean LOL.

You put it in the corner,was it misbehaving?
No LOL, (1) it is at eye level therefore easier to read, (2) it is at ear level, easier to hear, (3) it is out of the way when I have tons of crap on my desk, (4) is is up higher so hopefully better reception. :)

Hi Nate, looks nice!

How do you like the scanner thus far? I'm considering it in near future... (I have a Home Patrol, and older uniden version, similar to the 396 but can't recall right now)

The color scheme is kind of appealing to me too: not usually into dark colors but that's kind of a cool look, and (if your shack is like mine) hides the dirt ;o)

My understanding is that regular users do not have the ability to change the title of a thread. If you know how to do it please let me know. I can only change the title of my posts not thread titles.

Correct. If you look at nategb's original post's post title (under his avatar), you'll notice that the edit has been made. The thread title is copied over from the subject line during thread creation and can only be changed by someone with admin privileges.
