• 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:

If you just got some decoding software and want to try your hand at it, it can be very frustrating, because so many sigs out there are encrypted or encoded so that the casual watcher can't understand it.

To make things easy, I've put together a list of easy-to-find stations that can be decoded (with the right software). You can find that list here;

Testing Your New Setup - The RadioReference Wiki

And I would be remiss - even though it's technically OT since this is a non-ham forum - to mention the ARRL transmissions...

Digital Transmissions

Remember having the right software for the right decoding job is a very important decision in this game

If you know of any other easy to hear digitals (apart from hams), please feel free to update the wiki article above
