• 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 have all the FEMA frequencies programmed in my radio. After 9/11 FEMA used a repeater that I coould hear quite well from my location. Is anyone closer to Paterson picking up any federal communications related to storm recovery\?

I had the scanner on all day( i do mean all day),didnt hear any activity on them-
Anyone hear anything on the Fema channels?
I'd say maybe the scanner isnt stopping because they could be using encryption,etc.
I hear a buzzing on 142.400 every now and then but it could be intermod.(i have a high gain antenna)
Maybe they are going to resume operations on Tuesday?

even if some thing is encrypted you should still be recieving it on a scanner. I have a BCD 996XT and when something encrypted comes over it clicks a few times at the beginning then goes silent and then at the end it clicks a few times again.
