    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.

They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

It seems that the Yalobusha County Sheriff's department's repeater output is on the city of Grenada's repeater input. This causes problems on a fairly regular basis because the...
