Listening to calls at night in bed
How do your significant others respond or deal with the scanner/minitor on at night? It pretty much drives my old lady nuts and we've had many a bicker about it in the morning (aawwww, she's just cranky cause she didn't get any sleep...:D ) I have a minitor and it only broadcasts the dispatch channel, but that can get pretty busy with all the tones and everything. Just looking for some solutions (besides sleeping on the couch or in another room) or ideas from my bro's and sis's who have delt with this before.
Listening to Nighttime calls
I have 4 scanners in the house and my pager. My wife makes me turn down all the scanners at night, but the pager in the amplfier on alert lets me hear any of our calls. I sometimes hear some chatter on the scanner from the livingroom, and will get up to hear the details. I am also in a scanner listeners alert group that sends alerts to other scanner enthusiasts, so sometimes I will sit up late at night listening for any calls from the surrounding counties.
