• 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:

Has any one on the list use either of these for Mil-air scanning? I am thinking about getting the Pro-2052 since it is on closeout for $99.00 dollars and use it mainly for that. Can the 2052 am mode be selected for anyband?

The 2052 cannot change mode. but it does have computer control, for $99.00 you can't go wrong

Re: Pro 2052

I think it could do better in the 110 to 136 range. I seem to get some spurious signals in the lower end. 129 to 136 is a bit cleaner.
But if your focus is Mil-Air , it seems to perform better up in the 200's and 300's.

I would second the 2052. I have one and live where interference from stuff both RF and electrical kill my signal to my uniden base models as well as the ones attached to the external antenna. But the 2052 has good conversion and cuts most of it out. I can hear on my 2052 more than the others due to that factor. And $99. You can't beat that with a stick.
