• 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:

Another new guy!

First off, WOW what a great site. Thanks for having me. I've been cruising the site for a few days and wanted to say hi. I have a bc75xlt and hoping to get something better down the road.

I'm hoping to find some channels near my house to listen to. I'm in lacombe alberta. So if anyone can steer me towards those channels I'd be grateful. I'm hoping to find the fire department channels as I hope to maybe join the volunteer department in the near future.

Thanks

Yeah I have programmed the channels I think are for my area now thanks. I've found one for the town next to mine but I hear what sounds like the train company.

Using the search function can be one of the best ways to find interesting stuff. There will always be things that either, no body has found yet, or they're relatively new.

Good to see so many people getting radios though.
