    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:

I've been looking for some info on this mysterious Chicago radio system for YEARS. Rumor has it is that it's some kind of "secret squirrel" radio network that's used by Police, Firefighters, news media, hams, civilians and all kinds of other wannabee's. (Sounds like The Loyal Order of Raccoons Lodge!)

I've heard it may operate on several "out of band" repeaters. Anybody have more info?

They used to run on a GMRS repeater, I think it was 462.550, but it has been years since I heard them there. I have also heard of MURS use by a bunch of south side Tac guys.
