of course I left a lot out, sorry...lolHi Bert - Welcome to RR!
There are a few questions you need to know the answer to before you choose a new scanner. Will you be using your scanner at home or on the move? Walking around or in a car?
What do you want to listen to? Police, fire, ambulance, aircraft, etc? Let us know, and the folks on this forum will be pleased to help out with suggestions.
You have picked a great time to get back into scanning - there are some great scanners available!
Nap: I bet you are a blast at parties. If you expect any municipality to do something as important as implmenting a communications system on budget and on time I got some good land to sell ya ;-7.Nap said:I'd say don't spend too much on it. The writing is on the wall, eventually all these channels will be encrypted and your scanner will be pretty much useless.
If you drive on any of the provincial highways its good to have a digital capable scanner. You can listen to almost everything from the Toronto border to the tip of the peninsula if you have a decent antenna. If I had $ to blow I would buy a PSR800, 996XT in that order. Not a big fun of the other ones.Nap said:LOL.
I was just saying that an inexpensive trunking analog scanner would do. OPP/RCMP already have all they need to encrypt (and I don't see why you would want to listen to them miles north of Waterloo anyway). Waterloo region is analog and yes it will take some time for that to change.
Kris: you should have a sticky in this forum containing information about your services and what you offer. That way anyone new looking for a scanner can immediately learn what and how much you offer. Note to Ron and Mike Cuipa: if Kris is cool with this would having this clash with the sites dealings with Scannermaster?Infinitig37x said:Just got another gre 500 off kris (have had a lot of radios and like this one the best) can't beat his prices eh
