    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:

We have a couple of homebrews on the Scanner Antennas wiki - including the Grove omni clone, building a ground plane, ect. Homebrewing is fun if you have the tools - and if it breaks for some reason, it's yours to fix. A good education all around.
