• 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 didn't make it past the second paragraph of the article, with its attendant technological ignorance, before I felt myself losing IQ points. Facts and accuracy in the media are quickly becoming extinct.

The town had initially considered converting all emergency radio equipment from analog to digital during the narrowbanding process, but decided that paying for narrowbanding and digital upgrades at the same time — expected to cost $8 million or more — was not feasible.

oh so thats the only reason not to go digital
