A Real Scanner

While it’s prohibtively expensive to build the Equinox radio scanner probably represents the pinnacle of radio scanning equipment today. A fully remote controllable PC based radio (RF) scanner this is truly the Cadillac monitor.

From its home in the Seattle, Washington area, the Equinox receiver provides continuous, remotely-accessible coverage of the DC-1 GHz spectrum on a 24-hour basis.

While it would be a bit much for individual hobbiests to build one of these it would be cool to see scanning clubs such as Minnesota based ScanFan get together and buid one for community use. The internet provides a great way of participating in this increasingly expensive hobby (as more systems go digital) if we could allow for some remote control and data from the reciever(s).
