More Than A Podcast
I had been in the hobby before and when the times kept us home I looked at it again. I started looking and found that what I knew wasn’t current. Ordered new scanner and was amazed how complicated they could appear. Not many resources as well developed as Scanner School. Started at the beginning of podcasts and felt as if my knowledge level increased to be able to use the new radio. Now I have the hobby bad and monitor multiple areas of interest. Not all podcasts apply to my areas of interests but are extremely informative and well produced.
