• 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:

Hi icomR20, welcome to RadioReference :)
A blocked scanner will omit the range that was designated for cellular roughly 824- 849 MHz and 869 to 894 MHz. Public safety and business will occupy the 850-868 range.
Some geographical areas have been rebanded from the 860's back to the 850's as well.

824- 849 MHz and 869 to 894 MHz have nothing on it!!! If you are from USA take blocked or ublocked - no difference!
