• 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:

    Boston EMS - "BMC Menino"

    Hi Gang, Listening to Boston EMS via online feed, I wonder why they refer to Boston Medical Center as the BMC Menino. Is there another BMC location that receives ambulances? Or is this a political reference to the Mayor? Thanks for your replies.
