• 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:

800 Mhz Trunk non digital

Central Nova Scotia Correction Facility- 'Burnside Jail' - 868.3125 (Repeater Output). You have to be in a good spot to hear well (Bedford Highway-Flamingo to Larry Uteck) and up the hill into Clayton Park, etc from there. I'm sure some spots in Montebello Estates on the Dartmouth Side would be okay. Otherwise...pretty spotty & noisy.

Not a lot to hear really...food delivery at meal times, barristers visiting, etc.
