• 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:

what do you think??we can do!!!

I'm not sure what you are saying, but you have a great receiver in the AR8200. I have one along with a large selection of scanners. The AR8200 has the audio of any unit I have heard. I use mine to listen to mailair and my local sheriff's department that is still on VHF. I do use it on HF from the porch, but I have many HF radios with good antennas that I do not use the AR8200 from the radio shack. I have both ScanCat Gold and a software program that I downloaded for free to program the AR8200. Modern receivers and scanners are just too complicated for me to try to do it by handl.

Good luck with your new toy.
