• 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:

Background noise - no squelch between transmissions

Melrose, Ma
I have a new feed - Melrose Police & Fire. I am noticing there is constant digital-infused background noise at all times between transmissions on my port, as if my squelch is open. I do not hear it on other channels. It is not coming from the scanner, and the computer is outputing clean audio at the speakers. So it seems to be inserting on the server end. I am searching the forums for info on this. Any info would be appreciated, perhaps the admins may want to redirect my stream to a clean port. If so, just do it and let me know, I will catch up. No problem if my feed gets cut-off during the transition.

Thanks all!
