• 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:

KTUL just did an Amber Alert test, but was scrolling on the ticker that "authorities have issued a child abduction emergency for all of Oklahoma" effective today thru tomorrow.

Was it a test, or is something going on??? :confused:


EDIT: disregard, I did some research and "child abduction emergency" is just the EAS code for an Amber Alert. Kind of confusing though.

The way that is worded, it is sort of like a thunderstorm watch.

Would not have been so bad however it blared over my TV's in the house at least 3 times. Even with the TV in my sons room turned down still managed to wake him up it was so loud. They should test it some other time or just once.

In today's forecast as a group of low life individuals move northeast across the state there is an 60% possibility of child abductions in trailer parks in the northeast part of the state. There is currently a child abduction watch in effect for northeast Oklahoma. As the low life individuals get more liqured up this watch may be upgraded to a warning.
