Radio Scanners


This post can be considered as a follow up to the Radio Frequencies List.

I just wanted to share a scanner setup I just purchased. As we cover a race, I found it impossible to be monitoring all the freqencies to obtain the best race info.

Today, I purchased a cheap $189 Uniden scanner "Sport Scanner 200".

This little gem can hold 200 assigned fequencies and displayes each frequencie in Alpha format, i.e. "WEATHERMAN".

There is also some nifty software for $30 called WinScan Sport that will let you control and populate the frequency/name list.

The scanner also has a gaggle of other features such as "priority channels" etc.

So, if your team leaks some good info over the 2-way, we have a better chane of reporting it. Beware.. Nah...

I think a scanner is the best way to go for anyone that is a race spectator. The cost is low and there is no way to cause problems by transmitting on race day causing problems like so many dumb-ignorent people to by sitting on the mic button. I'm not dumb i'm ignant ;-)

oh snap pjc, take yours back and get it from rugged radios and save.

the 100 channel scanner thru is only $84.90, however, 100 channels is no where near enough. Pat's 200 channel is the real deal.
