Important Changes to the Broadcast

First of all thank you for all those who donated, subscribed and/or joined my Youtube. Due to your help I am proud to announce the purchase of the latest generation scanner - the UBCD536-PT. This scanner does not only allow proper TGID naming but it also improves reception, increases the number of channels I can receive but it also adds clarity to the communications like never before. This scanner is now in full operation and is running on my internal datbase 5.1.

Importantly it does APCO25 Phase II which the GRN will switch to sometime in 2021 - which will make all other scanners door stops pretty much. Its sad but we have to move with the times.

It costs me several hundred dollars a quarter to maintain this website, licensing and software so I decided to get into the cruel Youtube World. If you want to help me out but dont want to spend any money (who does?), please head to my Youtube Channel and become a subscriber. It will help me a great deal. The primary stream will always be free but I alway am looking for ways to survive another 3 months. So if you can help me, take up one of the support packages (thanks), become a patreaon (thanks!) or subscribe to my Youtube Channel (THANKS!!).

This is all for now in terms of updates, but before I forget, the Scanner Australia Toolkit 2020 is currently NOT working. I am going to release an updated fixed version over the months - when I feel better and depending on my schedule.
