• 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:

Those new modes are helpful for those that want to give digital a go, but are not proficient at typing. I'm still happy with PSK31 and having a conversation. Fortunately, I can type fast enough and edit any typing errors on the fly just before it's transmitted.

Since FT8 was released, I can't even find any PSK31 to monitor. Hoping that Wolphi comes up with a new format addition to his really nice Android Apps so I can use my tablet and phone again. Wolphi, we need FT8 please, and thank you.
