• 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:

    SKYWARN frequencies for North Carolina

    I've been looking around for frequencies that SKYWARN spotters use in Western North Carolina, specifically in the Charlotte area. I used to hear lots of traffic on 145.350 or around there, but lately I haven't heard anything. I've tried different repeaters in the area to see if they were used...

    Over at hamsexy, it's obvious how they feel. But is there another side to this? Is HS just putting up youtube links to the worst of the worst, while ignoring vehicle installs which might actually be useful for something, or are storm chasers bad news in general, driving rolling road hazards...
