• 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:

With my FTA satellite setup I've noticed that many of the news choppers encode a digital squaking signal in some of their audio carriers.

what is this signal (you can clearly hear it in the attached link's video... may wanna turn down your speakers) and is there a way to decode it (if it's not encrypted of course) and how?

(on an offtopic note, whether you agree or not with the occupy movement this is a very interesting way of getting your message out. legal or not.)
