    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 spent all day getting the shack remodeled. Now that everything works, I just need to re-program all the radios. First picture is an overview of the corner.


Here is the left side. First is an extra computer for radio programming, data decoding, and I use it for video capturing. Under the LCD monitor is an old PRO 2020. Next over are the PRO 2006 and 2004. On the shelf from top left over is a PRO 2035, 2032, equilizer for the stereo, PRO 2055, BC 780, PRO 2053, XM Skyfi, and a PRO 2096.


On the front desk looking out the window is my main computer running dual monitors with a PRO 2051 and PRO 2041 on the left side. On the right side is a BC 895 mounted under the desk.


I think I am going to mount 2 more scanners under the left desk when I get more money and more radios.

Thanks, and in case anyone wants one of those tables, they are at Target on clearance for $38. You can find them in the back-to-college area, or regular furniture section. They are sturdy and can support a good amount of equipment. Plus, you have those 2 shelves underneath where you can put 2 computer towers.

Nice setup ! I'm sure those radios keep your ears very busy. Is it ok to stack radios on top of each other ? Do they need some spacing to allow air circulation or allow heat to dissipate ?

I have had no problems over the years. Most radios have "feet" to allow for adequate spacing. The only issue I have is the speakers. You have to fold down the feet on some to allow for noise to come out the front. I just added a PRO 2044 today on top of the PRO 2006. I have a use for each radio now, except the 2044.
