• 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 have checked in a few times. It's great to hear, and be able to talk, to someone on the other side of the world using an HT from my driveway. You hear people checking in with "no traffic" simply means that they don't have anything additional for the net, just checking in.

No traffic

It means that the person talking has no messages or information pertaining to the general net. This is common on some nets to prevent long conversations during the check in and to return the frequency to general use for general rag chewing.
