    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:

I've heard lots of praise for the SS feature on the PRO-97 radio. I can't seem to find if the SS on the PRO-83 is the same generation as on the 97 or not. Anyone have any experience with the PRO-83 Signal Stalker, specifically in the VHF/UHF air bands?

The PRO-83 (and 2051 BCT-8 clone) is made by Uniden for RadioShack and has Signal Stalker I (Close Call in Unidenese) and has a quick *near field* detect over a wide frequency range or band selected range. You activate it by pressing Func + the Signal Stalker symbol for >2 seconds. You can cycle through Signal Stalker only, Signal Stalker + Scan, with backlight flash and, or beep alert.

The PRO-97/2055 has Signal Stalker II and is manufactured by GRE. You can select the band or multiple bands to "stalk" and it works fairly well with stong near feild signals, but will only work as a stand alone feature. I do like the second Signal Stalker II mode that includes only Fire frequencies or Police Frequencies, that is a plus when on the road.

I got SSII working good today. You can use Win97 to select which groups or bands to stalk and does more than just the police fire bands.
