• 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:

The county also will borrow another $4.4 million to fund installation of the 700 MHz emergency radio wireless system that links Harford with other local and regional emergency broadcasting system.

The 700 MHz system's total project cost is $21.6 million, according to the fiscal 2017 capital budget, of which $17 million was to be funded through bond sales and the rest through pay-as-you go funds.

Is this to assist with the CMARC/Harford system or something different (FiRST)?

CMARC is a pretty gruesome system in some parts, this could be some help-out money for it.

Could also be partly invested in funding ISSI infrastructure if they're looking into that... just blindly postulating some good uses of additional funding if it's termed for new stuff.
