• 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:

Looks nice! Curious though. I thought commercial trucks could not have scanners in them? Again, curious and I am open to learning.

Amateur Radio Operator I’ve never seen a special law for commercial drivers, never had an issue, just turn it off during an inspection

Had scanners in my trucks for 17 years and not too much was ever said about them even during DOT inspections. I always had FCC license on lanyard in full view hanging from headache rack just to dissuade any questions. I can count on one hand the times my scanners were discussed with LEOs, and it was usually a pleasant conversation. If you don't start trouble there won't be any trouble.

Just to mention - those Western Stars have the best roomiest condos I have ever seen, even bigger I think than my old Freightliner Classic interior. The last 12 years I drove I was assigned a Freightliner Century class and the Western Star condo made mine look like a walk-in closet lol. But, mine was a company truck. My trucks and horsey trailer filled my driveway. I eventually had to have it redone as my big truck cracked the concrete lol
