Welcome to Scanner School

Are you interested in the scanner radio hobby?   Maybe you have a radio and you have no idea what do to do with it.   Or – did technology pass you by, and now you are lost?

My name is Phil, and I want to welcome you to Scanner School!

I have been around scanners since before I could walk!

Growing up, my earliest memories include watching the red lights dance on my grandparent's old Bearcat 101 in the kitchen.  The sounds of police and fire tones would make their way into the living room as we played on the floor.

A lot has changed from those days.

We are here to help you understand the Scanner Radio hobby

I love this hobby, and I love to share my knowledge with you!     Scanner School is a collection of tutorials that are quick and easy to digest.   From entry level to advanced scanning techniques, we'll cover it!

We release weekly classes via audio tutorials, also known as Podcasts.   You don't need any high tech devices to listen though.  Simply visit our site and there will be a player for each new podcasts.   For those with mobile devices, you can take the tutorials with you and listen via iTunes, Stitcher, or Google Play.    I suggest signing up for our mailing list so you don't miss any classes.

In addition to Podcasting, we will be bringing you video tutorials, product reviews, scanner classes, and even one-on-one consulting.
