Anyone else into scanning ?

Post by daxi on Mon Feb 04, 2008 6:52 am

I got into scanning many many years ago when scanners first became available. And still have a 10 channel Uniden XL50 from that time. It has no band scan just 10 channels to listen to Shocked Shocked Shocked
Currently I use a Uniden 3500 with close call. A Realistic 2006 base scanner, a ancient Realistic 200 channel handy that my daughter currently uses & an Alinco DJ-X3.
Personally I'll listen to anything but taxi drivers.

Anyone else into scanning ?

Well Alan,

I have the Yupiteru MVT-7100 Scanner in the back of the cupboard. Its very complicated to use and is quite chunky!!! I don't use it much but will get it out and start to use it again...

Yep, I'm into scanning.

I still have most of the gear I started with. AOR 2002, AOR1000, AOR900, and an Icom IC-R100.

Because of the age of my gear, finding new frequencies with the slow scan rate can take a while. But I try.

Marine band should be good there.
Air band.
Try the local amateur repeaters.
