• 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:

There is a federal law that prohibits the decryption of encrypted transmissions. With that said no scanner company will even attempt it. Even if it was not illegal it would be an extremely difficult undertaking since no two systems will have the same encryption keys programmed into their radios and even some of the older types of digital encryption have more than 19 quadrillion possible encryption keys. So even if it were legal to make a scanner that will accept the programming of encryption keys you would have to keep trying them one at a time until you got it right which would probably take longer than your lifetime.
