~Radios in your shack: SDS200 and a BC895XLT for scanning. I have far too much ham gear to list
~What do you monitor on a daily basis? Aviation, and public safety on Palmetto 800 and local conventional systems
I have recently become re-interested in scanning because my HF antenna was taken down (quite literally) due to construction. The BC895XLT hadn't seen the light of day since the early 90s, but she fired up like a champ. It's great for aviation monitoring, and my upstairs office is in the approach to a local airport. I've always been an aviation nerd, and it felt like old times. Regarding ham radio activity, I am active on the local VHF net, and I do a lot of DMR and DSTAR via hot spots. I've also started chasing the FM amateur satellites. I guess the lack of an HF antenna hasn't stopped me from enjoying the hobby, and it's rekindled an old flame; it's brought me back to my roots. So I invested (heavily!!!) in a new SDS200. I never would have dreamed of such a machine back in the 90s....it's been a great quantum leap for me and I've really enjoyed it! It says I've been a member since 2006, but I've always been the typical "fly on the wall". Now that I'm back into scanning, I will have a lot of questions, and I've enjoyed and learned from countless posts. I'm looking forward to good things from this group. 73 es all the best

Just bought a uniden bearcat BCT15X for my son in law. I Had programmed it using freescan, didn't have much trouble doing that. But i don't hear anything on the Palmetto 800 for the same channels i use on my whislter. Will this uniden only pick up stations using conventional programming? Would like some input on how to best program this uniden for my area.
Love the site and the forum, great info on here.

~Don't monitor anything yet, haven't unpacked radios, set up shack desks, ran cables, mounted antennas, or figured out if the 996 will receive anything or if encrypted. Gotta lot of work to do!
