• 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:

Just think of how different things would have been if that fire occurred during the week of the state firemens convention. They would have had unlimited resources in town and everyone would have wanted to see some action. It would have given the interop raiod freqs a real workout!

Heard on OC fire ch 2 the last fire department unit clearing at 12:40 this am. Fire investigators were still there along with one wagon with a line to the hydrant and a line stretched to the fire scene in case of a rekindle.

During this fire, from Rehoboth Beach I was able to copy the Delaware, Ocean City and Worcester TRS with my new PSR-500 and a Radio Shack 800 mz antenna. My BC 396 with an Austin Condor antenna only received the Worcester sporadically but did fine with the Delaware and OC systems

From reading The Watch Desk forums there was no damage to Tower 5. Looking at the pictures/videos the Tower had to be at least 8feet away from the flames. I have to say thats pretty AMAZING how there was no damage to Tower 5 not even blistering in the paint.
