• 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:

Wow, I was up listening to my scanner in bed last night at around 3:00 AM, and Zone 5 was looking for a tan crown vic that was firing shots from the car. Well they spotted the car on I-71 Southbound and he exited onto Broad, blowing through red lights, everything. Eventually he made his way onto I-270, then to SR-104, and baack onto I-71 again. The chopper reported him going at least 100 MPH and trying to hit cruisers. They tried to hit him with spike strips and missed twice.

They then chased him into Madison County, and they missed him with the spikes 3 times also, and that's pretty much all I listened to. It moved out of my listening range.

Did anyone else hear this? I'm kind of exited since this is the biggest chase I have ever listened to. :)

Bummer should have switched to OSP & LEERN. I bet you could have been listening then. See why a digital scanner would be useful!

my 796 is for sale. All set up for central ohio!

saw it on the Cols. news this morning. Guess I'm not the only up at three sometimes listening to a scanner.

I was listening on LEERN, but after the chase was getting far into Madison County, the Columbus Units returned back to the city, and let OSP handle it. And you're right, I need a digital scanner! :)
