• 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:

Hello,

Been looking at lots of good setups and figured I'd post a few pictures of my truck

Installed in 1998 Suburban

Mobile is a Kenwood TM 271
Scanner is a Uniden Sportcat 180


and trust me...no one wants to see my home setup....very very unorganized but revolves around my Pro 2055

I don't think I'd win the messiest desk contest...but may be a runner up.

As for the Kenwood I am very impressed with it. It is easy to program, great audio, scans channels extreamly fast...I could get away with no scanner using just the radio

I remember when Kenwood didn't scan very fast, ICOM had the fastest scan rate, and then Yaesu came out with some pretty nifty radios. The last Kenwood I had was the TM-V7A and was not too happy with it. It got stolen, and I bought a Yaesu FT-8900R to replace it. Its got a fast scan too, I'm guessing 15/20 channels a second. That kenwood looks so commercial though, it must be mil-spec 810.
