• 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:

I was thinking earlier today about what will happen if the President-elect's plan concerning tariffs on goods produced in foreign countries comes to fruition. Specifically, what about Uniden and Whistler? Will they open plants in the US or pass the cost of tariffs onto us. I have been holding out for an updated Home Patrol model that will do DMR but I'm wondering now if I should just go ahead and get a 436 or TRX model before something happens. I really don't care for the current DMR-capable models because of their displays, plus the fact that my Home Patrol 2 fits perfectly in my vehicle. Are their any consumer electronic goods currently produced in the US? I know it is too soon to tell but I think it is something to think about.
