    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.

Don't have mine either. Their phone number is 630-499-5851. Their website says they are opened on Saturdays but I never got anyone to answer. You can bet I will be on the phone Monday morning.

I haven't received mine yet either. I called last week and they said the magazines were mailed out late and it should arrive at anytime now.

Nope, I certainly don't have that issue yet but then again I'm not sure if I got the August issue either. Looking more and more like my subscription did indeed run out. Oh well. I did get the latest issue of Army Times in the mail yesterday. That's pretty cool and there's no way I'll let the subscription run out on it. Gotta have my Army Times every week.

I had it a few years ago (maybe 7 or 8). Is it worth subscribing to now? I know I'm asking personal opinions, but let them rip. I get some pretty good & timely information on this site. I wouldn't mind receiving something in the mail on scanning that I can set down and read if the content is good, however.

I don't consider scanningusa to be a very good INFORMATIVE mag. I stopped buying a copy at the local Boarders books and they stopped carrying it. Guess I was the only one.
Unlee you're new to scanning neither magazine (Monitoring Times) don't have much to offer.

They probably wont have that review on the 996T unitl 01/07, LOL.

I did not renew my subscription to SUSA, there was one article that struck me wrong about 6-7 months ago. One of the writers went on and on saying its a "privilege" to subscribe to their magazine and blah blah blah. Really coming down on the people who subscribe. Havent read it since.

Besides, like others have said, unless your a newbie, you dont learn much by reading it.

Monitoring Times did a 996 review in their July issue. ;)

Probably true but I still pick em up. I'm not impressed with the editor; lots of errors in the USASCAN magazine.
