• 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:

Big do'ins in town,

Don't forget to listen to your events tg's the next couple of weeks.
ACC & NCAA at Bob's Arena.

Even though the crime rate will rise, the area gets money so it's all ok :roll:


I have been needing to go to Charlotte soon anyway, guess I should see when not to go. Glad you posted this or I'd have no idea this was even going on.


edit to add... I was stuck in Cary the week of the ciaa back in 2002 (I think) and I was never so glad to be armed in all my life. Too bad I was assigned across the street from a nexhell site that blocked the cary system as well as all the other 800 systems. It was boring as heck with no real scanning.

To be honest, I have no idea where it is and I'm 110% ok with that. I spent several days in Charlotte when my sister was in CMC, and that was more than enough to last for this decade.





So, where is bobcat arena? :D

Was monitoring Events yesterday afternoon and evening along with all the rain and thunder.
Biggest issue was a rain leak in building..
Grog, should make you feel better. No riots or crime spree.
I'm in the travel business here in Charlotte and the few big events(ACC/NCAA/Furniture Market in Highpoint/NASCAR races) that occur here in Charlotte are a monetary godsend to businesses and the city.
Having lived in quite a few places, a city this size has a pretty dismal record in attracting conventions and events.
