About This Site
Local (Gainesville/Alachua County & surrounding area) Scanning Info. This site mainly covers information of interest to scanner buffs who are either living in or who may be travelling through the Gainesville/Alachua County, Florida (and surrounding) area(s). I have also included links to other areas a little farther out. If you know of a Northern Florida scanner-related site out there which is not listed on these pages, please feel free to let me know, and I'll include it.
Errors/Corrections: PLEASE notify me of any errors or changes that need to be made to any information provided here.
WARNING to local mobile scanner users: Local police DO ask for proof of your license (amateur radio, Press, alarm system contractor, or whatever else which by statute gives you the right to carry a scanner). If you are stopped, say, for a traffic ticket, and they notice a scanner or a radio that looks like a scanner in your vehicle, they likely WILL ask for your license. Therefore, you should always carry your FCC-issued Station/Operator License (hams), Press credentials, or other license with you at all times while mobile. Keeping a copy of the Florida law regarding mobile scanner use in your glove compartment would also be a good idea, just in case. Also, if you travel, you should know the laws in other states, as well. For more state laws regarding mobile scanner use, please see my other web page...
