Re: Digital Scanning Question

If you'd like to pay less money in my opinion Whistler scanners do a better job with P25 than Uniden. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/whistler-d ... =212&loc=1 No P25 Phase 2 with this but I don't think you need it for what you have mentioned.

Re: Boston River Run on SOPS-1 this morning.

Yes, it could have been! It was just a guess and very possibly a bad one. Most of the roads mentioned were in Cambridge. Harvard Police was involved as well.

If the Xfinity Center is operating as they did with their older analog radios?? (Bearcom Rentals) They would all hang out on Ch1 until a certain time before showtime and then an announcement would be made and they'd scatter to their respective departments. Early in the day many fewer workers and the...
