• 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:

Why are the dead UHF frequencies for CMHA, GCRTA, and Cuyahoga County Sheriff Dept. still being displayed in the RR database, Just curious.

They'll likely remain in the DB until such time that somebody can confirm, without doubt, that the radios / frequencies not only are no longer in use by the agencies but the agencies no longer have the capability of using those frequencies if they want to [eg: radios removed from vehicles/bases]. Otherwise, they do stay in the database as long as there is a chance that the agency could spring into action and use them as a backup or something.

And for us to even mark these as deprecated, we need to hear reports from people confirming "we haven't heard activity on such and such frequencies for weeks | months | years"
