Rickie Traeger: Happy Friday, Scanner Questions…




It is Friday!!!

Sorry I did not blog yesterday. I was not feeling the best at all. So I didn’t blog.

I checked into the ARES/SKYWARN and SATURN nets last night.

I been looking for a scanner with good RX for the airband. I been trying to research online as to which one has the best audio on the airbands.  I see a few that I like, but I don’t know if I will get one.  I also came across the SDS 200 scanner while researching online. Looks like a sweet scanner, but………. there appears to be many issues with it. And it is $700!   I like to keep up to date on scanners, because thats what I enjoy.  I won’t be buying any anytime soon.  Pointless, cuz the police encryption.  Why spend a lot of money for stuff you can’t listen too…   But I do want to keep up to date on scanners, so if anyone has a question I can can help them.  Man the SDS 200 looks sweet, but man so many issues with it, and a price tag of $700….SMH

I need to research which coax has the least db loss at 200 feet, for the HF bands.  Someone said the 213, I am leaning towards the lmr-400.  I have to research some online to compare the 2 to see which one is better.

Anyone have any experience with multicouplers?  If so, I would love to hear your feedback on them.
