• 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.

Saw this on Local Chicago news

Pilots and air traffic controllers are exchanging information in a whole new way with Data Communications (Data Comm).

I know Myself and a lot of members are into Aircraft monitoring We have voice VHF/UHF/HF And https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aircraft_Communications_Addressing_and_Reporting_System

So the question is does anyone know if as Scanner listeners will there be a Program like ACARS So We will be able to also monitor this too

Happy Scanning

PS I do believe this will be a better system because as we all know voice message can get messed up But this will be on a display and read and accepted so Less questions if something does go wrong ….
