    Scanners are so cheap these days, it's crazy not to have one in your BOB.

    Plus I didn't realize you could use them for so much. Mine was only $99 and it does so much neat stuff other than listen to LEO. I can listen to news crew set up their microwave trucks, spy on retail store communications, find out the frequency of nearby radio devices, listen to HAM and marine radio, listen to weather radio, etc.

    I can pick up some of the same broadcasts with my shitty uniden 2-way.

    Theres about a 30 second delay on the stream.

    Sounds like Vegas police broken. No radio traffic in 2 minutes, which doesn't happen at any of our area commands.

    Edit: Nevermind, the internet player works. Too bad the scanner is only set up for Downtown Vegas is sounds like. We have 12 or 13 different channels..

    This channel in Vegas is funny, since its in a really poor area, all of the traffic stops I have heard in 10 minutes have been unregistered vehicles...

    Yea, that's the problem, you've got to spend around $500 to get a good analog/digital trunking scanner new, although some can be hand used on ebay for around $100, but they are usually missing stuff.

    Well, i'm lucky.

    The only thing trunked around here is fire and EMS. They're boring anyway. :wiggle:
