NEW UNIDEN SCANNERS

Hello and welcome back..... Sometimes I wished  lived in the U.S.A.....

WHY?

Because they love their scanners, just like me...

And some cool new products are coming out next year at pretty good prices.

Shame no other company are this much into Scanners, Good on you UNIDEN, Well done for keeping the hobby alive.

Oh, and while Im at it, Dick Smith Electronics...YOU SUCK, for killing what was a good electronics store and turning it into every other boring mundane store around...
They used to stock a good range of Radios (Scanners, Shortwave etc), Books (Scanner Directorys), Antennas etc... but now "Yawn"

Ok, back to Uniden :)

STRANGE AND INTERESTING

Hello and welcome back......Thought I would share these with you :)

1 = Spotted this morning (10/12/2013), 2 Boeing 777s flying about 1000ft apart both with contra-trails and traveling at the same speed, looked impressive against a dark blue sky, not something you see every day, almost as if they were following each other...
Thanks to Jack Harrington for the info

2 = Strange radar formation... A very strange radar formation of the coast of NSW between Hornsby and Newcastle.
It was suggested that it could have been an Aircraft dumping fuel or an UFO flushing a toilet...You be the judge.


The link (loop) that I had was from site - www.theweatherchaser.com but it seems to have crashed....Strange?
Loop address was -http://theweatherchaser.com/radar-loop/IDR043-newcastle/2013-06-11-01/2013-06-11-04 





WHAT RADIO WAVES DO TO OUR BODY

Hello and welcome back.... Found this interesting, what various radio wave (Signals) do to our body. I know after I have used a cordless phone for an hour, the side of my head feels hot and I end up with a bad headache....
Some people it effects, some it doesn't, but this graph shows what damage it is really doing.....

 UNBOXING A UNIDEN UBCD396XT P25 DIGITAL SCANNER

Also as said in the video, I brought mine from autoelecau on Ebay, you can view their scanner HERE

Note, the price has gone up slightly due to demand? but its still an excellent deal....Well, I'm a happy customer :)
You can get cheaper on Ebay and other places, but this is my personal recommendation and experience and thought I would share with you...

ANALOGUE TELEVISION SWITCHED OFF IN SYDNEY (And Surrounds)

Hello and welcome back..... Analogue TV in Sydney NSW is DEAD...

OK, not dead but switched off , as of 9am this morning, the analogue TV system in Sydney was given the flick.....

So why do I have a smile on my face?

Because the airwaves just got a little more quieter...

'Let me explain'

It now means I can scan from 30mhz to 70mhz with out transmission splatter from CH2 ABC sound broadcast (62.750mhz)... this was a huge problem (and a annoying one)

Whats on 30mhz - 70mhz = Military (Army is a big user of this band), Air force, DOD
                                              Old (really old) cordless phones, (yes, someone around my area has one)
                                              Baby monitors (around 40mhz)
                                              6-Meter Amateur radio band (50-54 mhz)
                                              Various company Chs (70mhz)
                                               Radio Control Toys (Cars, Planes)
                                              Tandy Electronic 2-ways (Kids Toys 55mhz)
                                              Older type Wireless Microphones/ Headsets(70mhz)
Did I miss anything??

Turn your scanner on and scan between 30 - 70mhz using 'Band Search' function.....you never know what you might pick up, now that it is a little more quiet on the airwaves..
