    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:

Hello all, I'm new to the forums here. I purchased a uniden 246t to replace my sony wavehawk (RIP) and was hoping to make this alot easier. All I use this scanner for is racing and air shows. Is there a way to "dumb" this thing down. Would it be smart to delete the stored banks, or lock them all out? All I want to do is store and monitor straight frequencies. I do wish to learn more with trunking and such but for now, I really only care to program it for IRL and nascar frequencies. I know this is alot more than I need for this, but I had the money and the smaller models are a bit cheap for me. The sony was sooo simple to operate, this thing seems to be a bit complicated for what I want to do. Any help/advice would be great! THANKS
