• 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:

Hey Everyone in and around OKC,

Thanks for reading this, used to there was a Radio scanner group that would meet monthly at a restaurant each month in OKC. This restaurant was decided by the people who came to the meet. It eventually died and no one showed up anymore. I'm here to try and revive this event. I know there was times where people couldn't come because they had previously arranged plans and we normally planned these dinner a week or two ahead of time. To resolve this issue I came up with a way for us to meet and know exactly when we are going to meet.

The Plan: We could find a day of the week like Thursday after work where everyone could meet. We would figure out what works best for having a big turn out every month, and set the every meeting for the same time each meeting. (ex. If there is a good turn out on the second Thursday of the month, we would set every meeting for the second Thursday of each month.) Before we left each meeting we could decide where to meet for the follow meeting or we would pick a meeting spot the following week. Either way it would be a set day and time every Month or Every Two months.

Give me feed back on this plan. Tell me what you're thinking and your ideas. Also maybe we can get a meeting in for Feb?

Talk to you soon!

Sincerely,
Nick

I live in shawnee but am retired so it sounds like it might be interesting.Most of my radio life has been HF DX and utilities but have collected a fair amount of scanners (newest is the BCD996xt) over the course of the years. I'm sure there would be plenty to learn from some of the more informed folks in the hobby. If there seems to be enough interest I would like to join in.

I've been preoccupied trying to get the snow and ice off of the vehicles and driveway.

I can't commit to a dedicated recurring time of the month, but I am available say Tuesday the 9th or 16th - unless I get the blasted flu again :roll:

I have too many things going on in my life to say what days I'm available but if someone picks a day and I'm free I'll try to be there.

One of the best looking groups of radio geeks I've ever been associated with.

Hm, how about Chili's?

Not committed to that by any means, I only thought of it because a friend gave me a gift card there! :D
