Richmond Area Scanner Club

As of 28 December 2010 the club name is now the Richmond Area Scanner Club 

The membership level is currently at 18 people. See Mike Chambers for the roster and to join.

The scanners of choice to receive APCO-25 digital content, including the Indiana SAFE-T network which the Richmond police dept and State police are active on, are the Radioshack Pro-197 and Pro-106. Recently the Pro-106 has been on sale for $249, although it appears to have gone back up to $299 by now. If anyone would care to compile a list of other scanners that would work, I would be more than happy to post it up here.


Below this point I have retained the original contents of this page.
