• 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've stopped with the submissions to the Database..Tired of waiting for a month to see things completed, and doubt other states are having the same problems...What are we going to do when MSCOMMNET rolls out? Wait weeks for updates?

I've had stuff take months, again just like other web sites and wiki's "It is a Hobby" and the DB and Wiki admin's are volunteers.

Sometimes LIFE get's in the way of the Hobby :cool:

Since the DB Admin for Maine is apparently not available at the moment, I will take care of anything you wish to have added to the database. Please submit your information accordingly.

Why don't you apply to be a DB Admin for the state of Maine? Email Eric Carlson about it. He may take a little while to respond, but if you're up for it, you should do it.

Your data is good, you know the frequencies and radio systems in the state.
You would be a good fit as a Maine DB Admin.

From whatI've seen on Mt. Aggamenticus, they have removed alot of trees and made an area big enough to set up a new tower-or 3.. Dont worry about this area for updates.

Well, here it is 3-10 and i have heard nothing from Eric about my offer to help out as a DB Admin?????
Guess they are not interested??
Yeah I recall inquiring before, it took a month or so for a response back and even though I am an extreme expert got turned down. Granted in my case if there was room for more help, etc.
