The Shop

This is my Radio Shop, of sorts. With the shutdown of Durham Radio, there isn’t a good local store for purchasing scanner and related items. I have connected with Scanner Master to provide a place where you can order scanners and related items from a good source. If you use the links provided, I will get a small commission through their affiliate program, which in turn, goes back into the web site or the occasional beer. 🙂

Scanner Master Police Scanners Corporation was formed in 1978 and since that time has been producing the nation’s most comprehensive communications guidebooks including Scanner Master regional volumes and Monitor America. Richard Barnett of Scanner Master Police Scanners also edited Police Call, the 7-volume regional frequency guide series that went out of production in 2005.For the past 15 years, Scanner Master Police Scanners has been a consultant to the scanner-radio industry. We participated in the design and development of the industry’s first trunk tracking scanner, the Bearcat 235, as well as many later models.

As the industry’s leading scanner consultant, no dealer or distributor is more knowledgeable about scanner functionality and operation. No dealer is more qualified to assist you with the programming of your scanner, a service which we now offer for a fee.

Scanner Master Police Scanners is also the North American distributor for Butel’s ARC (Advanced Radio Control) scanner software, the finest and most popular scanner software sold worldwide today. Scanner Master Police Scanners is also the North American distributor for a line of Czech-built scanner accessories including filters and pre-amplifiers.

For amateur radio related items, I suggest Radioworld in Toronto.

It’s the largest store of its type in Canada offering a wide variety of specialty electronics for your hobby needs. As an Authorized Dealer for all the products they sell, they provide full warranty support for any product purchased at Radioworld.

They have great service and pretty much the only true tech store in the GTA area.
