• 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:

Cook added that the two-way radio, found later in the possession of Headline's uncle, had been programmed with the frequencies of 22 agencies.
On Thursday, the sheriff said, Headline was charged with interference with emergency communications, a felony, for incidents between July 1 and Aug. 31, and for falsely reporting a crime, a misdemeanor, for the kidnapping hoax Aug. 31.
If he is convicted, Cook said, authorities may seek restitution for the search costs: "I'd bet you're pushing $20,000," the sheriff said.

It will be interesting to see if Headline or his partner in crime held an fcc amateur radio (ham) license.
