• 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:

This feed has been down for over a week now, during which would normally be some of the heaviest radio traffic (events, weather, emergencies, etc.) It has been going offline more and more frequently for the last couple months. Unsure whether the provider is having difficulty with setup or hardware issues or what. I know the system recently migrated to a P25 digital, but the providers equipment is handling digital fine. County wide they are split pretty evenly right now with analog and digital. We get the digital but the analog is gone, which is where most of the other half of the conversations is taking place? The scanner should handle both right?

Kind of a raw deal to be paying for access to feed archives after big weekends and heavy traffic, only to find out they weren't online during crucial times?

Have you submitted a "Feed Problem Report" to notify the feed provider?

Just because you pay for feed archives (premium) does not guarantee a feed's archives are going to be available. Remember, feeds are provided by volunteers, RR has no control over availability.

Thanks
