• 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:

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has issued an Advisory regarding two-way VHF/UHF radios. The full title of the advisory is "Two-Way VHF/UHF Radios May Not Be Imported, Advertised, Or Sold In The United States Unless They Comply With The Commission's Rules". Retailers and operators are advised that VHF/UHF two-way radios must comply with FCC technical requirements before they may be marketed, imported or operated.
