• 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:

Amtrak crash in Jefferson Co

Jan 5, 2004
Lo Co VA/ FM19
Just heard about this through patches to the Loudoun Co system. I'm not sure exactly where. Hit a dump trailer. The damaged truck is leaking fuel so a HAZMAT crew from Loudoun is responding. 102 onboard, no passenger injuries, two from engine crew going to get checked out.

They are making plans to put passengers on school buses in the meantime.

1945- A news helicopter will be showing up very soon.
