We Are the Media Source for Scanners, Software and Installation Services

Scanner Master has been serving local and national media for more than three decades. We sell scanners, antennas, accessories and offer programming services to those media outlets that want just the basic hardware and services.

However, we also serve local and national television stations and networks, including NBC, CNN, Cox and others as well as local affiliates in Miami, Orlando, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, New York and practically every market in the country. We have been the go-to scanner and software supplier for radio stations, traffic reporting services including Total Traffic, and major newspapers such as the Miami Herald, Atlanta Journal Constitution and dozens more. What sets us apart from the competition is that we know scanners as well as or better than any other dealer in the country. We understand your needs and constraints and we know which scanners would serve your newsroom or assignment desk best.

Additionally, we offer the ScannerStation multi-scanner monitoring system for the management of large numbers of scanners on an assignment or city desk. This system can be operated by experienced or novice staff and we also offer remote scanner solutions so you can service your entire market area by listening to all the public safety radio traffic in your region.

With our Rangecast system, your entire newsroom staff can individually have web access to one bank of scanners located in your office. Scanners can also be remoted at bureau offices (or staff homes) to any staff member with a web browser and a password to your custom scanner online page. You can even monetize the Rangecast system by embedding it in your public web site to make it available to all your readers or viewers.
