Anyone Listen to Scanners?

I got a scanner free from a friend and programmed a bunch of local frequencies into it. Pretty cool background stuff going on with it. Anyone else do this?

never done it myself, bu had firends growing up who had dads that did, granted i think it was to keep an eye on us kids at the time.

It was always said if we were on the scanner, better not to come home that night.

I used to. I have two of them. One old, one new. The new one gets the 800 mhz frequencies that the cops use, it trunks the signals too. Pretty sweet.

Been doing this since I was 7 (manual dial multi-band radios)... My handheld is an older Realistic Pro92 that does all the trunking etc. Pain in the ass to set up expscially with the service codes (so it identifies who is talking on the system) but once it's set up, it's quite fun... I have mine banked out by geography, so as I go around the burbs I can enable/disable the appropriate channel banks so as to not waste time scanning inapplicable shit.

It's a great way to get a pulse on the community

They also trunk the signals for each frequency. Meaning there could be 10 sub channels for each frequency you hear.

I have a scanner app on the iPhone and I can listen to different cities around the country also. It's pretty cool, and it was free at one point but I think it's 1.99 now

I still have mine, back in the days when they the government was blocking the 800 mhz bands (early 90's) so you couldnt listen in on cell phones, I was modifying them and opening those freq's back up. I cant tell you how many times I heard my neighbors credit card numbers

Scanners... I think I only have two or three at home. One of my better ones has the trunking built in to it.
I also still listen to CB radios when on the road and am starting to look into getting my Ham Operators license.

Yes...I use to know morse code cause not only am I a nerd, I'm also a geek.

My Grandma used to sit all afternoon in her kitchen with the scanner on. In a small town it's definently pretty fun because a good % of what you're hearing is address you know or people you know.

I picked up both Iphone apps Police Scanner and Emergency radio a few weeks back. Police scan seems to have a few more channels ex.Rail yards and whatnot but the audio stream seems to be disrupted too often. Overall prefer Emergency Radio.

Have 2 older handhelds, one 900, and one thats a dinosaur that still uses crystals.

Bank 7 = all the common shit like the walkie talkies, drive thru frequencies (don't laugh, it's fucking hilarious), etc.

these were from 2 years ago....
One is a guy who tried to run from the cops and then got into an accident, ran from the scene and cops had him at gunpoint
Another is an armed robbery and they chased them, lost them and ended up catching them.
