• 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:

Good pics, but a little on the big side. My monitor runs at 1280x1024 and they force Firefox to scroll.

Just a little hint, not meant in a bad way, but Imageshack might be a better option next time - you can upload thumbnails which point to the full image.

Use a free image hosting site like image shack, which is what I used. Here's a listing you can choose from: http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-image-hosting.php?sort=3

Good point. Honestly, my camera's image size was larger than I realized, and resizing the image really degrades the quality.

What is the software that is running on the two computer screens?
Cool setup!

That's a beautiful setup. I also have a VX-7R and BCD 396T and they are great rigs. But what do you w/ all that gear when a CAT 4 is heading toward Tampa /St. Pete. I usually pack up my most valuable rigs in Pelican cases and get out of Dodge towards Atlantic Beach or somewhere else outside of the probability cone for an enforced vacation.:wink:

Very nice but dont you want to sell me a HT-1000? :) My shack used to look like that until I moved I left half of my gear at my parents, at first it was just noise to them, then they became hooked on knowing what was going on around us!

Another question. How do those mag mount mobile antennas work without a ground plane?
They work okay considering they're inside. They're both 800 MHz cell phone antennas which I use for trunking. They can pick up systems 15-20 miles away. I once tried a baking tray and it made no difference.
