• 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:

Radio Monitor Meeting, Sunday, 11-03-19 5:00 PM To 7:00 PM Bloomington Davanni's


Apr 29, 2006
As posted above, this is now official. There will be a meeting on Sunday, November 3rd, 2019, at Davanni's Pizza, Bloomington, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The street address is 8605 Lyndale Ave S, Bloomington, MN 55420, Phone 952-888-6232. To give people a general sense of where this is, it is a few blocks south of I-494 and a few blocks east of I-35W. They also have free wifi. Also, if there is interest, I can bring my AT&T hotspot. I have unlimited internet and I am happy to share it. I do know that some people are reluctant to use wifi at public locations and I certainly understand why.

If anybody is interested in an official (or unofficial) talk in frequency/talkgroup, please let me know. For analog, I know that 146.700 works very well. If there is DMR interest, perhaps I can get a DMR talkgroup. I don't have the D-Star or YSF, currently, so if there is interest in that, you will have to contact someone else.

For those that have been following this forum, fmulder13 has a Uniden SDS100 and has agreed to show it off to us.

Please consider bringing your equipment to show off to others. I am always interested to see how each receiver performs on the ARMER system.

I, personally, don't currently own a huge amount of equipment. If there is interest, I could bring the following:

-AnyTone AT-D878UV Portable Transceiver

-Rugged SPOT NEX-GEN Custom Hot Spot

-Unication G5 Dual Band P25/DMR Voice Pager

-Uniden SDS100 Digital Handheld Scanner (DMR/NXDN Upgrades

Also, if anybody here is currently using Network Radio, please consider bringing those along to show off to others. I currently have Echo Link, Peanut, Zello and one other app on a my Sonim XP8.
