• 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 don't know why anyone listens to the 42 band because MSP hasn't been on that in almost 10 years down here.

I did...but it was on 45.20...

I also heard a few stations rolling in...One was about a fire and they had tankers on scene, sounded like a southern drawl like KY/Tn...And the other was the NY state park system...I have the old 45.20 mhz on for the Gogebic Co. EMGT system...
