• 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 all- hoping to not anger anybody but I couldn't find a "new members" spot to introduce myself. This is Frank, I have a kingsize affinity for radio communications. My scanner is the Uniden BC785D. I hope to learn a lot in this forum-so with that I respectfully stand by 73s

Righton and thank you! By the way being here inspired me to bust out an old friend from the radio closet-my 1989 Regency turbo-scan 800..man she's still working fine although the button pad took awhile to warm up. This particular unit wasn't blocked for cellphones back then-I was getting it all!!! Ahh, those days are gone..I snuck a search 889.98-925.0mhz. nada..a virtual desert now. 7s

Hi Ridge,

You addressed the radio gods and you got one. You may call me Golden Boy, the genius of electricity. I'm just SO good AT&T erected a statue in my honor so you may worship me. Welcome.

"You're really try to pull N_Jay out of the woodwork."

Nah, he eloped with Receiver Beaver and by now they're in too deep for extraction.

"We don't bow to anyone-however I look forward to learning a lot from you guys here."

The first thing you have learned is I'm RR's official Joker In Residence. You have also learned when you walk with eyes closed you bump into things, mostly me. To put it another way, careful what you ask for, you just might get it.

Yup, you'll learn here, if nothing else you will learn to obey.

Thank you both. I came here to learn more stuff-looking forward to it. As far as Warren, I didn't say anything wrong and I didn't ask for trouble. Everyone can see that. I know it's hard to judge demeanor within text..however when compared to the other friendly responses to me it's not hard to see his rudeness. I'm offended. But I'll live. Warren- kindly explain the humor in dogging a newcomer like you did. I'd also like to know why the moderaters as well as others on this forum are allowing this thuggy crap to happen. Thanks 73s

Warren generally means no ill will, and his sense of humor can be very hard to read sometimes. Don't lose any sleep over it ... none of us do. :D

Nice that you know him- I don't. I came here because of my passion for radios and he wasted no time in coming at me like a punk! Did he do that to you too? Well, enough said. I will heed your wise advice and join you in tolerating "Warren's humor"...on to better stuff-thanks 187--
