    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:

Don't those still count as cell phone transmission and thus illegal? (honest question)

I'm going to leave this closed since the topic has been asked way too many times. IDEN is not considered "cellular" so the monitoring laws don't apply to it. Outside of reverse engineering the protocol no US laws will stop someone from monitoring.
