• 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:

    STARS capable scanners

    Hi. I know a digital trunking scanner is needed to hear STARS. I also see that there is now STARS and STARS Type 2. Is Type 2 needed or advised? The names of a few portables used successfully to monitor STARS would be appreciated. Thanks.

    VSP Issues

    I have a new BCD396XT, and everything I've uploaded to it (from RadioReference via ProScan) works great EXCEPT Virginia State Police!
