IMPORTANT reference websites for D.C. area scanner listeners:
Scan-DC is an electronic-mailing list dedicated to discussion of scanner radio-related topics in the Washington-Baltimore area. List members send messages to the MailMan software which distributes the messages to all list members. Members can receive the messages individually, or in a periodic digest which collects multiple messages and distributes them as a single message.
Share current public safety information for the D.C. area on the FREE Zello VoIP "walkie talkie" network using your smart phone. This channel was inspired by the Scan-DC e-mail group. Users may share details on local incidents (fire, police) and more! Feel free to share information you feel is pertinent!
Feel free to write, fax or e-mail for more information. We welcome frequency and visitor requests, but please include a reply envelope.
