Re: My Radio setup after 60 years in the hobby

I'd be curious what you listen too with so many radios? I find myself that after four or five of them are going that I hit my limit of peripheral hearing which is how I describe multiple scanner listening. Almost a subconscious listening where it's changes in the voice or inflection you tune in on.

Some of the big Command Posts have large cache's of radios to hand out so if they are all on 800 it may be something like this? https://www.metrowestdailynews.com/arti ... /308059958

Re: Television Repack Thread

Hi Dennis,
There are tower workers in town working on their tower. They are probably moving antennas and feed lines around. They should be back you may have to rescan again since you did when they were down. I'm not home to check but I'd guess that work would have been done on the weekend.
