• 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:

While scanning the Boston Police Department a few days ago ( I listen to A-1 and A-7 ) there was an ALL OUT broadcast on all stations calling for all "EDTs" to report to a crime scene in Mattapan. A-1 had two officers who were EDT's and A-7 also had two.

I have no clue what it means.. not one website or forum has any explanation.

Thanks,

Thank you garys! They just called one out tonight for a missing elderly female, and I knew what it meant this time.

Thanks!
