I am not educated throughly in electronics aside from what i have tought myself from reading since i was a wee one, to the little bit of training that I got in the Navy. I studied electrical thoeory, and then we did minor trouble shooting on basic, and slightly complicated circuits in Navy "A-School". To get to the point, my knowledge is limited so i have come here to hopefully find a solution to my problem. I have a consumer type radio frequency scanner that allows you to of course listen to brodcast by police and etc... My plight is that most larger cities are transfrring to the 800mhz and even to the 1.2Ghz frequency range. My scanner is only capable of covering from 25Mhz-512Mhz I have been told that you can purchase or even build a frequency converter, that will allow you to listen to a range outside of what your scanner normally covers. I have even checked into the legality of such a device and discovered that it is perfectly legal to own, posses, and use as long as you do not break current FCC regulations. IE listening to encrypted or otherwise encoded transmissions. My questions is, could someonw point me in the right direction for building such a device. If they are comercially available, I would still rather have a schematic and build it myself, for many reasons, aside from the learning experience alone. i have built a couple of very small transmitters amoung other small circuits. I have also built a few more intricate designs but to be honest, I was onlyfollowing the directions and so on, and had no idea what each compomnents purpose was inside the entire picture. If anyone could help, please do so, i must apologize for the long post, but its slightly my nature to be long winded. P.S. my email address is .com, and not a .net I did that incase the spam bots decide to come along and harvest emails on the forum.so my email is admin2ccsnmore.com, and once agian, I left the 2 in place of the @ symbol
