• 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:

Here's my monitoring post in New Zealand
The radios are a Kenwood TS850SAT and a Icom IC 7400 radio.
Also in the pic is a Yaesu FT1500M vhf radio 137mhz till 174mhz.
Also a Kenwood TS50s hf radio.
Active on 80/40/20/17/15/12 mtr ham bands.
All run on wire antennas and vertical antennas.
Also enjoy vhf dxing in the summer months.

cheers from Jason in NZ.

Hi Crayon

I live in a town called Wanganui which is in the lower north island and the west coast line.
About 150kms north of Wellington.

I sure like my FT-1500. It makes a great scanner as it has better sensitivity, selectivity, and sound quality than any scanner I've had. A real bear to operate in comparison to scanner with the skip and priority functions being very cumbersome however.

Cheers Jason!

I listen to RNZ on 9870 many mornings here when I sit down to check my email and do work stuff before I head out. They come in real well most days, 7-9am on the east coast.

One of these days I will get there. It has moved pretty far up my travel list now but the wife and I have to take a break from travelling for a while to pay some bills ;)

Oh yeah, nice neat shack too. Mine is getting close since my move a year ago. Maybe one day soon I'll get some pics posted. I'll have a before and after..

See ya!
