Great Podcast and More!

Not only do I thoroughly enjoy Phil's podcast, but I recently finished a consulting session with him to help with my scanner set up and it was amazing!! Saved me many hours on my own and even had I done so, I would not have gotten nearly as far as I did with a simple call/screen share. Phil's knowledge base is tremendous and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others!

Great fundamentals, history, and technology

I have really enjoyed this entire series. Phil really understands scanning and explains it in a way that everyone can understand a somewhat complex technology. Easy enough to start as a beginner and good information for those that I’ve been involved for a long time. The choice of topics always is interesting and I always learn something I can use. I even listen to some episodes over and over to get the notes and comments down. Highly recommend this as a favorite in your podcast library.

Very good, but...

One of the few scanner-related podcasts that’s lasted more than a few episodes, though we’ll see how much longer the host can come up with topics for. I’ve been in the hobby for 40 years now, but still learn things from the host & his guests. The downside: Not all the guests really are knowledgeable/experienced enough to speak intelligently about the topic they were brought-on to speak about (the military-aviation monitoring guest speaker is a good example).What started off as a podcast by a fellow-hobbyist is now evolving into a big production, resulting in some of the podcast’s time now being spent by the host gently asking for monetarism “donations,” and “rewarding” those who donate by giving their names out in the podcast, plus the host’s commercials for paid “consulting” sessions. It’s the host’s right to do all that, but more & more it seems to devolve from a labor of love by a guy we can relate to, to a for-profit business hosted by someone doing it in the hopes of making money off it.

I love Scanner School

I have had a "Police Scanner" for 50 years. At 9 my grandfather bought a Bearcat 1 and I have been listening to a radio ever since. Although I am a Ham Radio Operator, been in broadcasting since 1977 I still look forward to this podcast. I learn something from almost every podcast. I appreiacte the time and effort Phil puts into it and it is an easy listen and with the website, a perfect resource for a long time scanner user or a brand new one. Thank you Phil!
