• 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:

The land of broken calculators.
The county is under a Federal Communications Commission order to change its 800 MHz radio frequency because the sheriff's department communications interfere with a nationwide effort to integrate first responder systems.

I must say, that's one I haven't heard before.

Hey, those salespeople have bills to pay.

I'm in IT and used to sarcastically wish I'd gotten into sales due to the absurd nonsense that has come from salespeople (and worked).

Now I wish I'd gotten into RF and sales. If I should ever end up in a position of influence over a radio contract, Harris is the last company I'd be involved with. Opensky and its disasters alone are enough, then garbage like this. I can't imagine this kind of nonsense coming from anyone but an account manager or sales engineer.

So true, the only thing I can add is "Amen" on all of the above.
