This file depicts all changes, corrections, additions, etc. that have been made the North Central Fla. Area Scannist's Page.

07 JAN 03  Changed contact e-mail addresses.  Old ones were dead.  I forgot
           about that.  (Oops!)

           Updated Trunking subpage to reflect current status of things.
           Renamed to Trunking & Digital Communications.  Added links
           to outside sources on the new digital scanners Uniden is making

           Fixed broken link to Fla. scanner law.

           Uniden finally made their first-generation digital scanners
           available to the public beginning of the month.  People around
           the country have already bought some and are showering newsgroups
           with reports of their usage.  They're EXPENSIVE.  About $330 to
           $370 for either the handheld OR the base unit.  PLUS, both
           require the add-on Digital Accessory Card, which is another $300,
           itself.  Total cost nearly $700...just for the ability to hear
           digital communications.

           In preparation for the onslaught of questions that the new
           scanners will bring once people start purchasing them here, I've
           sent e-mails to GPD and ASO requesting information on their own
           channel assignments, talkgroup codes, etc., so that I can update
           these pages with the info for users.

12 NOV 01  Changed name of page, slightly, to better reflect current
           aims of page.  I don't need to cover the whole of Northern Fla.
           since there are plenty of pages out there now, and I'm not one for
           duping information on an already crowded web.  Also means less
           for me to have to keep up with.  So, the new name for this site
           now becomes the "North Central Florida Area Scannist's Page."

           I've decided I'm no longer going to mention anything on this page
           every time I add a new link in a links page.  From now on, I'll
           place the date the link was added to the end of the link, itself,
           on the links page.

           Still waiting on someone to come out with a digital capable
           scanner.  There are some problems with that, as well.  Even if
           they come out with digital capable scanners, how difficult will
           it be for people to get ahold of the keys?  And is Motorola, et
           al, going to be a stinker about it?  If so, there's no reason to
           update this page anymore, or to even bother with digital and/or
           trunking tutorials, since it won't matter, anymore.  Will have to
           wait and see how things go.

03 JUN 01  Page being pretty long, I broke up the various sections into
           separate subpages.

06 JAN 01  Finally to a point where I can at least function after my cat's
           death, updated this page.

05 NOV 00  Added statement under GPD/UPD frequency links, and to Local
           Scanning News page, stating GPD/UPDs apparent move to the
           new digital frequencies - comms in old freqs have largely

27 OCT 00  Gainesville Sun publishes article advising "police, fire
           monitoring off-limits to media."  A few people (including
           me) mistake this to mean local government is attempting
           to enforce a new, across-the-board, anti-monitoring law.
           This is not the actual case, but public service agencies are
           moving to new digital communications system and 800 MHz
           freqs.  This has the same EFFECT though, since no scanners
           yet exist which can track digital trunking comms.

18 OCT 00  Raisen (my cat) died out of the blue, behind me on the bed
           (always near me).  7 years old.  I'm very upset and not much
           interested in my own hobbies or in updating any web pages
           for a while.  She was my best friend.  This house is empty
           without her.  Everywhere I turn is a reminder of her.  Life
           seems to be passing her by and she's missing it.  This is
           not fair.  This wasn't supposed to happen to her yet.  All
           the things she was, all the things she knew, all the special
           things about her, all the things I taught her growing up
           that made her different from all the other cats, our special
           relationship, her unusually high intelligence...gone...just
           like that.  All the efforts I went through to protect her...
           I looked forward to her being there to come home to every
           day.  I still expect her greeting at the door, or the want
           for water at the sink, or to be sleeping beside me on the
           floor near the computer chair, or to be purring on my lap,
           or to jump on my bed and then upon my chest to sleep at
           night.  Where is she?  Then I see the urn. Then I see her
           toys still lying about here and there.
