    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.

    New Jersey Programmers??Anywhere??

    I have had a Radio Shack Pro-106 for about a year and have not had the patience to program it. Does anyone know someone in New Jersey that will program a scanner for a fee? I don't mind paying if they know how to do it. Thanks for any advice.
