 No resumes, just was asking about where everyone on the list was from and maybe their “scanner” background.  All voluntary, and maybe in violation of the groups posting rules, but not intentionally.

When I was in high school in Arizona during the early 1970s, the
counselors hounded me about what I wanted to do after school.  I did
not know.  Then in my Junior year I bought a Radio Shack Patrolman
Pro-7A scanner (with crystals).  I installed it in my 1972 AMC
Gremlin and started chasing police calls on Friday and Saturday
nights.  Family, friends, and even my mom sometimes accompanied
me.  That was when I decided that I wanted to go into Law Enforcement.

I spent 5 years as a city police officer in Arizona and California
before going federal in 1984.  I spent 14.5 years as a Special Agent
with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) which included
4.5 years stationed in Naples, Italy.  The last 5.5 years I was a
Special Agent with the EPA Office of Inspector General in San
Francisco doing computer crimes investigations.  I retired 16 years
ago this coming August.

I now have a Uniden BCD536HP desktop scanner, a BCD436HP handheld,
and a BCD396XT handheld.

And, yes, my mom still has my Patrolman scanner hooked up at her
house.  It still received Phoenix Fire.
