• 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:

    iOS / Android apps

    Hi, I'm currently trying to collect a list of iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod) and Android apps which might be useful for scanning. There seem to be quite a few live audio feed apps out there. I'm wandering what else you're all using, and also which app you tried but didn't like?

    My friend is in the FD and they get texts for alarms. The texts come from 1-410-000-001 thru 1-410-000-499. Because of this they come in as a separate text for every alarm/number. I was wondering if there is a way to put them in the contacts as coming from ONE sender as one continuous text...
