    Re: police scanner

    Did it ever occur to you to just .. uhhh.. not do illegal street racing?? Most semi-major towns have legal street racing places now, sure, not as thrilling as the possibility of dying in a fiery crash and possibly killing innocent people at the same time.

    Re: police scanner

    well lets think about this question logically. Scanners are able to operate on a broad range of frequency and pick up any radio signal that comes within the antenna within it's range of frequencys. A cell phone such as GSm only operate on anywhere from 800 900 1800 1900. The higher the frenqency the better the signal quality. The main reason that they don't operate on 800 or 900 mhz in the states because that is the old police band and also emergency vehicles and dispatchers operate on it. These days cops operate in the GHZ range far above what cell phones do making it impossible for cell phones to interfer with there radio traffic. Also radios these days now operate on what is called trunking systems which means most of the radio traffic is handled via lan cables and computer server operated radio switchs which encrypt and decrypt the signals based on a key that is loaded into all radio within the net it is operating everything from the base station to the unit is cars and emergency vehicles and even the hand held brick radio. Scanners anymore unlss designed to pick up trunked radio traffic large don't pick up anything anymore. Basically you can't put a police scanner on a cell phone because they don't operate within or around the frequency band that ppolice radios do an also cell phones maintain a connection to a tower the same way a wifi network does.

    Well, you could connect your scanner to a PC and set it up as a stream (with a stream plugin for winamp) and then use a program like radiobee to listen to that stream. So you could do it that way wirh a faster BB like an 8100 or 8700, but not sure if the 7100I would work.

    ASIk, Welcome to PinStack.

    It just can't be done. Get a scanner if you want to Scan. There are no all in one devices out there. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your BB.

    Hi asik, welcome to pinstack. I agree with Rich, not possible. Be careful racing, I know many people that have been in accidents and have been hurt really bad, ahem ahem, but they are okay now.

    I had my ear cut halfway off, regret asking?

    How much do police scanners cost, are they illegal to have?

    Re: police scanner

    No Problem, ASIK, and I have a scanner I use sometimes, mainly for Railfan scanning or for listening to the Air Controllers at DFW. And we're good at Hijacking threads around here, but usually it will get back on track, just like this one has.
