• 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:

There are lots of receivers that can cover shortwave and "scanner bands" in one unit. However scanners in general act much different than a radio. Naturally if you need any trunking or digital scanning needs, you won't be able to do that in a communications receiver.

iCOM and AOR make excellent radios.

Looking on ebay, you can find the Yupiteru MVT-7100 its a pretty good wide band receiver with fast scan rate, lots of memories, covers AM/FM/WFM/SSB of course it doesn't do trunking. But if you want it for conventional scanning and shortwave, its a good little handheld.
