• 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:

NOT in Alaska, damnit!
The Spring Fire has apparently burned through the state's DTRS site atop La Veta Mountain between Walsenburg and Fort Garland along Highway 160.

A CDOT AWOS on the site is "Out of Service Indefinitely."

Look for a SOW to come in and provide coverage in short order if the radios are melted.

Can those with more skill than I confirm the DTRS site is not functioning?

Thank you in advance.
