• 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:

Went by the firehouse earlier today, we have our state OES engine in Kern County. Apparently they had some 50 of so lightning fires there. I also saw more CDF Schedule B caravans (a few strike teams). moving across to the east side of the valley.


Those lightning strike have been very active even up here, I am hearing lots of activity from Camino and Grass Valley to Porterville. Read somewhere over 15,000 strikes in California. http://yubanet.com/regional/15-536-Lightning-Strikes-Hit-California-on-Sept-10-11.php

Sorry too busy with 9/11 activities to get more data for everyone.... But from the visual indications outside it might not be as bad tonight, but I doubt it's be clear weather tomorrow.

Did you watch the SF Giants game last night?

They showed instant replays of the lighting hitting the Mt Diablo Area. It was awesome, 42" widescreen HD lighting replays...
