As far as what I listen to ... mostly LAW ENFORCEMENT, EMS, STARS, FIRE, AIR and of course the local AMATEUR (HAM) repeaters as outlined below. :wink:

BC780XLT (top) .. Monitoring AIR bands.
BC780XLT (bottom) .. Connected to Etrunker.
LPE200 (left) .. Monitoring EMS and FIRE communications.
PSR500 (middle) .. Monitoring LAW ENFORCEMENT, EMS and FIRE.
VX-170 (right) .. Local 2m HAM repeaters / Portable.
FT-2900R .. Local 2m HAM repeaters / Base Unit.
FT-1807M .. Local 70 cm HAM repeaters and Stars / Base Unit.

I also have a Yaesu FT-2900R radio in my car, for when I am mobile.

I do not use external antenna with my radios .. expect the base unit amateur gear with which I use a dual band Comet antenna on the balcony. Not really too much to see as far as the antennas go.

Kevin, it's actually a nice set up that fits YOUR needs! It's more than some have and less than others have - but it's a good balance for you, is clean and well put together!

Ah yes, nothing like good old trunker/Etrunk. That automatically makes any station cool! Looks like you've spent just a LITTLE time identifying radios.

I have spent well over 1000 hours I am sure identifying radios. I have been at it for I think around 10 years now.

Thanks

Dontchya hate it when they change stuff on you or a unit grabs the wrong portable? How about waking up early to get those busses doing radio checks? And reserve fire apparatus is always a pain. :D

Yes ... you hit the nail on the head.

I checked out your photography thread ... excellent work. I hope my pictures aren't too bad. I used an older camera but I think it still does a reasonable job.

My opinion? I don't think they're bad at all! That other thread turned out pretty good. It looks like your etrunk shot shot came out pretty good considering only a 1/8 shutter speed. I guess you were using a tripod with etrunk paused?

Nope .. everything was handheld. I know I could have done better with a tripod but guess I just didn't think of it at the time. Etrunker was running normally when I took the photo.
