• 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 was surfing around the ICIS site today and noticed a comment that LA-RICS did not plan to lobby the FCC to keep the UHF-T band....so I did some more looking, and saw LA-RICS has a new plan to build their system with all 96 (48 pairs) of the 700 Mhz frequencies and existing 800 Mhz frequencies licensed by LA City and LA County. I am sure the radio heads know about this, but it was the first I heard of it.....and didn't see any news posted since 2012.

Here is the LA-RICS filing with the FCC

And here are filed comments on the FCC Site
