• 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:

The BCD996P2 looks like the best radio for the money, however it's more than I want to spend.
So I'm gonna wait for this radio less there is an equivalent cheaper, I don't think there is it sounds like.

BCD996P2 really sounds like a nice radio.

What is the SDR you're talking about?

I have a lot to learn here this is for sure..

About RTL-SDR will give you the quick and dirty explanation of SDR. I've yet to get into SDR so my knowledge is limited.

I have a BCD996P2 and love it, but I plan on doing an SDR setup soon just to tinker with it.

Uniden BCD996P2 so far looks like it's the only logical way to go, I only wanted to spend 250-ish. See what happens for Christmas..
