Rickie Traeger: May 11th Blog.. Jury Duty & Old Roots




Good morning everyone!
Well I dunno if it is morning or evening, because it is 12:30 am I write this up, LOL. 

I been doing a lot of stuff with Rockford Scanner.  My overall goal with Rockford Scanner is to bring the scanner hobby back. That has been my goal from day one.  So I am going to re-focus on that some.  Even though the police encrypted their radios, there is still a lot to listen too. See that is the thing, many people assume since it is called “police scanners” that you can only listen to police.  That is wrong. There are a lot of stuff you can listen too.  Police that are not encrypted, fire, medical, aircraft, race cars, fm radio, ham radio, satellites, plus much more!

Guess what I get to do soon, JURY DUTY!    Yup, they called me into jury duty in the near future.  I have already looked up the dockets of all the trials on the date. And I have done stories on several of the trials. So I know a lot of information already on some of these trials. And from what information that I have been told, these people are NOT guilty. So it be interesting if they choose me, because I already know alot about several of these trials already and my opinion based on the stuff that has been told to me already, they are not guilty.   I wonder if they will let me do jury duty anyways, since I am a well known local journalist that knows a lot of stuff?  Shall be interesting to see on jury duty day! LOL

 








Rickie Traeger: Happy Monday! Messing Around On The Website, Police Scanner…




Good morning everyone!

Hopefully everyone had a safe weekend.  Hate to be the bearer of the bad news though. It is now Monday, and the weather is about to get cold 🙁

You have permission to hate me for a few minutes, for bringing you that bad news, LOL.

So I am about to experiment a bit on here with the design and stuff on the website.  I normally live by the motto if it is not broken then don’t try to fix it.  And I should do that now, lol.  But I am in an experimenting mood, so I am going to play around a bit on here and change the layouts and stuff.  See what I like and don’t like.  I am going to do that after I write this up.  So let’s see how my Monday starts off, LOL.

If anyone has a desktop police scanner, they want to get rid of. Let me know. I am looking for a desktop scanner.  Prefer a model that is similar in size to a Pro-197 if possible.

Speaking of scanners.  I saw Walmart was selling the Whistler 1010 for only $20.   And people are trying to sell them online for $120….WTF
EBAY~ CLICK HERE

Walmart- CLICK HERE

I understand people wanting to make money, but WTF…

I am popping off here. Everyone stay safe and stay dry and I should add Happy Monday!
