• 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 understand its digital, and that for example a patrol car in Cleveland can patch to a car in Cinci. So I am trying to figure out what all I would be able to hear on it, like for example would I be able to put in a talk group for Cinci and hear it here in Newark? I am very confused about how it all works.

That is not how the system works. You would only hear a unit from Cincinnati if it was affiliated with the tower you are monitoring.
