• 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:

Can a HAM listen to non trunked or Trunked Public safety systems on their Radios? Also if they can and they are listening to a system and they accidentally key up, does it go out over the system? Or if you are using your Ham rig as a scanner can you disable the mic?

Non Trunked, Yes, if their radio is able to recieve the correct freq.

Trunked, No.

A Ham will not accidentally key up on any public safety system.

Before this thread goes bad, I'm closing it!
