• 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:

This confirms tone switch after narrowbanding. TY for that. On a lot of narrowbanded systems, the singals seem much "weaker" on scanners than wideband did/does. Many agencies also have switched to new tones after going narrowband. That is why I have been asking everyone in every state I admin for, as well as doing an thread in the database forum to remind everyone of that... Any other changes tone wise that you have noticed for Hawkins County yet?

Actually I did not recieve Hawkins Co Rescue Squad until after the narrowband or sometime around the deadline. It has took this long to figure out who it is because I can barely hear them amongst the static, but today I did hear them page out Hawkins Co Rescue Squad. I found them in a search awhile back and they dont seem to be very active so I probably could have recieved them before and never found them. It is possible the signal comes in better during different parts of the day also.
