worth a lot more for multiple reasons ...

Although this book may be many years out of date it tells you the nature of the technology being used. The different people using it, what different people use it for, how scanning radio recievers are aquired, as well as the realities and misconceptions of such devices. In addition to this Mr. Eisenson has a uniquely humorous sarcasm in the way he colorfully describes various different stupid things people do with radio scanners such as "how not to repair or clean them" among other things. Basically even though most of the information is obsolete the book is still a lot of fun for people who are amateur radio and/or scanner enthusiasts. For example towards the end of the book He states in not so many words that there really are no secret frequencies just different ways of encrypting, coding, and transmitting on them. One might argue that this book is like taking the extra fun information that would have been in an old issue of Radio Shack Police Call (which is now defunct) and multiplying it by at least 100 !!! The book really truly is a must have for people who are into radios.

Scanners and Secret Frequencies

Actually this is a good book. It gives frequencies in general not for individual states etc. But it is a well written and very informative book and we are glad I ordered it.


Great scanner book. Covers every aspect of the scanning industry. A must for all scanners and scanner wannabe's. Has frequencies and police termonology to everything else. I recomend this book to anyone who owns a scanner. Greatest scanner book i have & i have all of them.
