New scanner enthusiast says "Hi!"

New scanner enthusiast says "Hi!"

I recently traded some spare cellular phone equipment for a Bearcat SC150B
portable scanner.  Never having been exposed to the hobby, I didn't know
what to expect.  In fact, I'll admit to being less than enthusiastic when
initally offerred the trade.

Well, after 4 days, I seem to be hooked!  I purchased the new Police Call
and Beyond Police call books and have been listining to Police, Fire, Shool
busses (strangely interesting episode THERE the other day...), and the
occasional cordless phone.  I noted some URLs for archives at OAK with
scanner info also so I'll be visiting there as well.

If anyone has any advice for a new hobbyist as to organizations, events (in
or near C***te, NC), and other resources, or tips, or just to say "Hi",
I'd love to hear from you.  Since much of the info I would need falls into
the "FAQ" category feel free to e:mail me (I have a large mailbox <g>).  I
will answer (or at least acknowledge depending on the volume of responses)
all mail.  In the meantime, I'll continue to monitor here and scout the
archives at OAK and RTFM.

Happy Scanning! -- T.Rob
