Welcome to the official web site of the ScannerDigest Newsletter.
We hope this site can provide you with valuable information about our publication. We produce a quarterly e-newsletter that covers topics that are of interest to the radio scanner monitor community and it's available free by request.
If it can be received with a radio scanner, we'll attempt to cover it. The newsletter is broken down (and edited) by state and/or geographic region. Topics include the public safety agencies (Police-Fire-EMS) as well as business, aircraft, GMRS, amateur, news media, and utility communications. We also feature specialty columns covering military and computer technology.
Each issue of the ScannerDigest Newsletter is distributed to over 850 readers by email and is produced in an easy-to-read Acrobat PDF format.
The backbone of our publication continues to be the regional column editors and feature/specialty column editors who submit material that includes descriptions of various radio communication systems in use along with frequency information. What makes this a unique newsletter is that we actively exchange information between readers and staff writers. The door is open for all to share the knowledge.
Our philosophy is one that we believe in an open-format publication and accept content from anyone that would like to submit topic-related material. We're not a “frequency dump” of information that has been harvested from other web sites. We encourage “original content” material and feel that the combination of written and frequency information makes for a better understanding of various radio communication systems being depicted.
We appreciated everyone's cooperation in producing this publication. Enjoy!
