• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    How dose the dispatcher know if the radio is being monitored?

    Some times I will hear the code 11-58 witch supposedly means "radio being monitored change channel" or sometimes i will hear them just plain out say that the radio is being monitored and to use phone. How do they know if someone is listening? or do they not know at all?
