Radio Shack Pro-2045
Radio Shack Pro-97

I am primarily a milair monitor, I enjoy the B-1's and C-130's here at Dyess as well as the F-16's that train south of here.
I also keep up with most of the public safety stuff in this area.

BCT-8
BC-350
Pro-2006 (OS-456 to be installed)
Pro-2035 (x2; one with OS-535)
Pro-2042
Pro-2052 (x2)
Pro-2096
R7000 (x4)

An HF-through-UHF discone w/ mast-mounted preamp feeds the receivers through a variety of power dividers and downstream wideband amplifiers. The upstairs monitoring spot contains the two Bearcats and the two Pro-2052s; the latter are computer controlled via ScanCAT. My main listening post/operating area currently has three of the R7000s, the 2035s, the 2042 and the 2096 set up. The 2035 and the R7000s are computer controlled by ScanCAT and a couple other utilities.

One of the R7000s is equipped with a TV-R7000 NTSC converter. Two more have been equipped with SGC's ADSP2 DSP boards. All four have had their stock SSB filters replaced with Murata CFJ455K5s, which offer better SSB selectivity.

I do a lot of VHF low-band (25-50MHz) monitoring with this setup, and also listen to the railroad, FRS/MURS/GMRS crowds, local PS/LE TFC as well as the occasional amateur simplex frequency. The DSP units really help out when chasing after FLTSAT pirates in the 250MHz region.

BCT8, and my 2 meter rigs, our public safety hasn't switched to digital yet.  Been looking at the new digital capable ones, but probably won't pull the trigger on one until they do switch.

Just bought my mother an Uniden Home Patrol for Christmas. I also got her a discone and programming software so I could get it programmed. WONDERFUL SCANNER! I have had several Radio Shack scanners. Pro-39, the first 1000 channel scanner that Radio Shack came out with. 2 or 3 others. Our area has switched over to digital.

Used to enjoy listening to public safety, but they've all gone digital in the past few years locally.

I'm looking at Uniden, but I've heard iffy things about their audio decoding quality. Seems to be either between them or GRE, unless you want to count AOR's government-priced digital converters Smiley
