• 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:

Not sure if anyone is fammiliar with this unit or not. My grandmother gave this scanner to me about 15 years ago. It was my grandfathers a really long time ago. It has an access plate on the bottom to get into the scanner to change crystals I assume. Still works great, justs needs a little cleanup. It's a MacDonald Instuments CE-100. Brings back a allot of memories.

I believe this is the same model my cousin found one Christmas holiday at my Grandmother's house. I was probably only around 12 then, and so I managed to talk my parents into getting me a 4 channel handheld RS scannel for a present. From there to a RS Pro 30 that my uncle gave me, and then to my current BR330T. Ah the memories...

I have seen these before, I think it is actually a Midland under the hood. There were several brands that were rebadged from other manufactuerers like Bearcat, Regency and Midland.

Montgomery Wards and Sears sold Bearcats labeled with the store names and there were others.

Amazingly, there is one just like this on eBay right now!:wink:

That is me in the avatar. However, it is a HK USP .40 with the brushed stainless slide. The springfield XD is a remarkable pistol as well.
