How to Scan Under a Budget with Nathan McMullan

Nathan joins the podcast today to discuss how he is able to enjoy the scanning hobby while sticking to a budget.



What you need to know

Getting start with scanning or sticking with the hobby on a limited budget can be a bit tricky.
With today's high end scanners costing several hundreds of dollars, monitoring your local trunk systems can be a bit of a drain on your wallet.
Today's guest, Nathan McMullan,  talks about how he is monitoring all his local activity, including a P25 Simulcast solution all on a budget.
We will be covering a lot of what Nathan and I spoke about in our SDR Workshop course.
