Today I was spotting at MIA at the viewing area and when I decided to leave around 6PM or so I ran into the customs building first before leaving to use the restrooms and buy a snack- anyway, somewhere along the line I got distracted and left my aviation scanner/radio hanging on the fence near a photo hole and left without it Didn't realize my scanner was missing until I got home and when I went all the way back to the viewing area my scanner wasn't there anymore.
Anyway- I'm hoping the two spotters that were left there saw it and took it off the fence- if you guys are reading this please drop me an email or post here I'd really appreciate it! You may email me at cessna email@example.com (without the space.. thats just so the spam bots don't pick it up).

LOL, jeeez Phil- how much can I buy it back from ya? While you're at it do you have the address of the seller? Maybe you can supply me with a bat and a plane ticket as well?
Justin, I hope I see them again too- but I wasn't implying they stole it, more like hoping they picked it up knowing someone else might take it later on and they might be able to get in touch with me or one of the other guys there.

Haha, really sorry to hear Serge. It must be a pain to lose a scanner at this airport. Replacement won't be cheap but lets hope that some of the fellow spotters you were with or some nice folk who knows this site retrieved your scanner.
Expanding my global domination one spotter at a time..

Hey Bo, Jay.
Yeah, I'm hoping one of the local spotters might find something out about it. If not, I'm basically going to have to buy a new scanner as I'm back in my small town again (can't put up the reward posters but good idea Jay). Oh well... I guess I'll just move on and hope someday someone can get in touch with me about it.
If someone did take it that has no intention of returning it and is reading this- better watch out guys, its a small world What goes around eventually will come around. (not trying to imply anything bad about anyone on this site, just saying its so global whoever took it might be reading this).
thanks for the help all,
Serge (good news is the price is coming down on some of these scanners)
