• 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:

A lot of you know and have relied on Jeff, KA9YKA, (aka Trido) at The Ham Station in Evansville, Indiana as a source for scanners over the past 30 years. Friday, December 29, 2017 was his last day of work, as he decided to retire to enjoy more time with his wife, children, and grandchildren, as well as continuing to enjoy the scanning hobby on a more personal level.

With the current transition of Vanderburgh County, Indiana's EDACS system to P25, Jeff also plans on serving the local scanner community in the Evansville area through his new website, ScanEvansville – scanner site.

Jeff would like to thank all of his friends, customers, and fellow Radioreference members for the many years of fellowship and business. It has been an interesting journey from the days of crystal scanners to today's multi-mode digital units.

I talked to Jeff 1st week of December and he told me of his plans. I would like to take this time to say THANKYOU for all the scanner and radio sales dating back to the late 80's. I have driven the 180 miles oneway to buy several times. He will be missed from the sales side. As stated before enjoy your time thanks.
Dan still has things listed on the site new and used.

Found out from Jeff in December that he was retiring, and Dan also, after selling remaining inventory. Jeff always provided great service and was well versed in scanner knowledge, being an enthusiast himself. All the best Jeff.

Congrats Jeff and enjoy this new chapter in life. Can’t even begin to count how many new scanners I’ve purchased from you over the years, and all the frequency and Talkgroups changes through the years.

Happy scanning !!!

I tried starting a HAM Station Closing thread which is different than the Jeff Retirement thread but the moderator closed it. I guess he thought they were the same thing. If that were true it wouldn't have been asked if the HAM Station was closing.

The point about the business closing was already discussed in Post #7,8 above; another thread on that seems like a duplicate.

Hope this helps,

Well some people may not open a thread about Jeff retiring but would open a thread about HAM Station closing. But 6 of one and all that..

The thread you opened in the Indiana forum links to this thread. Someone looking at the Indiana forum will see that thread title and end up here.
