When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Yupiteru MVT-9000

Post by Serapis » Sun Oct 02, 2011 8:01 pm

Hi all,
I have recently inherited a Yupiteru MVT-9000 radio frequency scanner which I was delighted to get hold of and play around with and scan through the frequencies etc. However, despite being fairly technologically savvy I have found this device to be a sophisticated machine which requires a good overview of air band and radio transmission know how. Even after reading the manual and various online articles I have struggled to get into it. I don’t think it is the machines fault as it is well manufactured and apparently is a receiver of some merit - to those in the know.

I was wondering if any of the forum members are into scanning and have any experience of this scanner? If so, I would be delighted to have a chat and see if this machine is actually worth using and/or keeping. Perhaps I could a tutorial in its use if it could be arranged. Otherwise I will put it up on eBay or something as I am not getting much use out of it at the moment and it may be of benefit to somebody else.

Bren
