• 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:

That is a nice website. I used to live in Lee County and worked for the SO and the biggest thing I miss was going to the beach on a regular basis to enjoy the view and the bikinis.

Since I'm married, the bikini watching thing is out unless I wear shades, however the sunset at Naples beach is awe inspiring, long live the Gulf coast.

UH OHHHH, Ralph, I didn't want to get anybody in any trouble with this. Is it like a copyright infringement thing?

Doesn't look like he's trying to make any money from my stream...

Who owns a stream? That's a can of worms. If you stream a song... the song belongs to the artist and you have to pay royalties. If I stream the fire department... does it belong to the FD? Like I say can of worms... ugly fat worms! :)

Ralph,

I tune in on occasion to see how busy they are, and for sentimental reasons. I did list your feed as one of my favorites.
If its a problem just left me know.

The best thing about that site is the signals and 10-codes. If it wasn't for that, you'd have no chance of understanding a lot of the SO comms in Manatee County. And, if I remember correctly, the owner of that site had a falling out with Lindsay Blanton a long time ago for some reason.

that is a good site for south Florida
They also have good information on rebanding and which scanners that effects.
Our radio person here has not "got around to" doing it yet, so I still have a few months (?) left on my old Pro95

RE Christian runs that site. He has always been a pretty smart guy when it comes disseminating good information to the community, but he is a rather strange guy when it comes to working with the community as a whole.

Also understand that he loads his sites with tons of ads and pop-ups, so he is attempting to generate revenue off of the content, including any live feeds that he embeds.

Also don't forget that the was taking Rick Parrish's Unitrunker and redistributing as his own, prompting Rick to write this letter to him in an open forum:

Personally, I think RE Christian harms the hobby more than he helps it.

I don't understand why everybody is so upset about why this Richard Christian guy did what he did. Just trot on down to his hometown of Oneco & it's sister city Tallevast (Only in sun-up) & it will become all too clear as to what you're dealing with, full tank, good tires, fast engine, roadmap, compass, working cellphone & gun, no, several guns.
