• 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.

    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:

Completely new to scanners. HELP!!!!

Hi. Could anybody tell me where I can find control channel info for my area (Cape Town, South Africa), PLEASE?
You could actually locate it yourself using the SEARCH feature of your scanner in conventional mode. It will stop searching when it "hits" an active control channel.

Just take an educated guess of a "likely" band that is used and do a range search.
