• 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 was working during most of this but I did hear some traffic from the state police. They were operating a command post/temporary base on the TAC channel (154.665). There are a variety of bands in use in the area and I don't know of any good inoperability communication plan. I do know that some out-of-area agencies that responded planned to communicate on SIRS (39.54).

Very tragic events. It only takes one as$hole to tear peoples worlds apart. So much tragedy in that area with LODD's over the years.

Well a little late but I was in Radford and went into Christiansburg to see what I could hear. Most of the traffic I heard was on the Blacksburg PD Ch on 866.1500 and VT Police, and also was picking up the State Police channel John referenced.

I know here at Radford University that was what everyone was talking about, no classes canceled, but I know it was being talked about.
