About David Grub of Newport, PA
I have been in the scanning hobby for probably the past 30+ years. I’m 43 now and can remember getting my first scanner (an 8 or 10 channel Realistic crystal scanner) for Christmas. I enjoy scanning mainly local police, fire and EMS frequencies. I was out of the hobby for a few years after the county I lived in moved to an OpenSky system which you cannot monitor. I maintained one scanner (PRO-2014) and sold the rest. After moving to a different county which still uses VHF/UHF, I have slowly gotten back into the hobby. Recently I purchased a new scanner (a Uniden Bearcat BC355N) to mount in my vehicle but, after experiencing RF interference, I made it my new base. The antenna for the base is an off center dipole I made from copper pipe and PVC fittings and is mounted in my attic. A few weeks ago, I purchased a Uniden Bearcat BC125AT to use in my vehicle and had better luck with it. I have it mounted in a cup holder mount and am using a Radio Shack magnetic mount scanner antenna with good results. I am happy to, once again, be back in the hobby.

Check out David’s Mobile Shack with the Uniden BC125AT Scanner
