• 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:

I think I heard some FEMA traffic

143.60 - PL 71.9 - talking about closing out (missions) - and about a A730 aircraft - I just heard one male talking - I did not hear the party he was talking to - I dont think there was any repeater tail - it was clear FM analog - heard from near Boston - possibly related to Hurricane Irene recovery ops in western Massachusetts or Vermont - Tuesday 530 PM EDT

I also caught a 143.60 carrier with PL 71.9 on Monday - but I didnt catch any voice at the time - just an unmodulated carrier

Someone else over at Scan New England heard testing on 143.60 - it was heard from south of Boston IIRC - but I think the PL heard then was 118.8
