ABOUT RACE SCANNERS
A scanner allows you to listen to communications during a race between the Pit Crew and the
Driver.  

There are other things you can listen to during race weekend as well:  
*  Comments to the Driver from the Spotter
*  Race Control Communications
*  Emergency and Safety Crews
*  Media News Team that are there broadcasting the race.  

All of these have their own separate frequency channels that need to be programmed into the
scanner.

You can program the scanner by using the buttons on the scanner, but that is tedious.  
You can usually use your PC to program the scanner.

As your radio scans the frequencies that have been entered, its stops when it picks up someone
talking. The display shows an ID that identifies a number or name next to the frequency, that is
programmed into the radio along with the frequency.  If your radio cannot hold the name of the
driver, you'll probably progam the drivers car number as it's ID.  Radios can also Search - which
means it goes through all the thousands of possible channels - something you might do at home
to look for interesting channels.

At the track, you will have the radio scan the frequencies you have selected.  You might have it
scan all drivers, or a select few.

You can use a knob to manually move to other frequencies, or you can manually type in a frequency.

You can hold on a channel to monitor it constantly.

At some races, you can buy or rent a scanner that is already programmed for race series. When
you return the following year, they will update the frequencies in your scanner for free.


CHOOSING A SCANNER
The scanner must pick up analog bands.  You shouldn't need more expensive scanners that pickup
digital bands to listen to race teams.

Choose a scanner that has enough channels, often 100-500.  Consider how many different race
series you will want frequencies for.

Some scanners only display the driver's car number next to the frequency, while others display
the driver's name, which makes it easier to quickly know who you are listening to.

Example of scanners commonly used by race fans:
Uniden Bearcat BC-125AT and the Uniden SR30C.  Both are 500 channel.
SCANNER LINKS

Twin Power Scanners  Sells and Rents race scanners inside the Main Entrance (Gate 1) at the
Indy Motor Speedway, as of 2022.

RadioReference.com is the world's largest radio communications data provider, with forum.

SCANNER RENTALS AT THE SPEEDWAY

Twin Power Scanners has been selling and renting Uniden Bearcat race scanners at the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 2012.  You can find their green trailer parked inside
the track near the Main Entrance (16th & Georgetown Rd.)  If you bought a scanner
from them, you can stop by any time and they'll plug a wire into your scanner and update
the frequencies.  
They are at Indy for 3 weeks in May and at the NASCAR 200 at the Brickyard in July.

Beginning in 2022, there are no transmitters at the Indy Speedway to auto-update
scanners purchased from
Racing Electronics.  Also, Twin Power Scanners is unable to
update those RE radios.
Sometimes the strap for over-the-head headsets are bulky and prevent you from wearing a hat.
The behind-the-head headsets have a thin strap to go over the top of your head, allowing you to
wear your cap.

Headsets often come with noise-canceling, which makes it easier to hear the radio over the
noise from the race cars.

SHARING
You can plug in another headset with a simple splitter, allowing someone else to listen to the scanner.

Behind-the-head Strap
(This one has a mic)
HEADSET FEATURES
Headsets may come with the scanner.  If not, you should buy a pair because it is hard to hear their
speaker over the roar of race cars.

They usually have a volume control on them, sometimes one for each ear.

There are two types of straps for headsets:
Headphones can come with an intercom that let two people converse who are sharing the
scanner.  These headphones each have a mic.  There is a button on the attaching wire that
is used when you want to talk.

Bluetooth headphones are also available which allows you to get rid of the wire connecting
theheadset from the radio.  A bluetooth dongle for the radio is needed in this case.


TIPS
* Bring a backup set of AA batteries
* Bring a Driver/Car # list with you if your scanner displays only Car #.


OTHER THINGS YOU CAN LISTEN TO WITH A SCANNER
* Police and Fire Departments
* NOAA Weather Transmissions
* Business/Industrial Radio
* Utilities
* Marine and Amateur (Ham Radio) Bands
* Aircraft Band
