• 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:

    I simultaneously monitor multiple frequencies and would like to place them in one stream. They are low use but when they are used, they all are used simultaneously.

    GPS-aware app for Android

    I thought about this while driving back from New Mexico last week. All of the scanner apps I have used are GPS-aware in that they can offer nearby feeds. Is there an app that will automatically switch as you travel from jurisdiction to jurisdiction? That way you're always listening to the locals.

    Scanner recommendation for streaming

    Record Out & Streaming ??'s

    I currently stream a stereo feed on here. The current setup has the audio being routed out of the back of the "Record Out" Jack on the back of the 996 and 15x. My question is the audio volume that is fed out of the record out controlled by the volume knob or is it constantly the same audio level?
