• 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:

Ten potential vendors responded to a state request for information about the potential project. But the Kimball analysis identified just two - Motorola and Tyco Electronics - that could completely address the proposed requirements of the state’s system.
That’s gotten some lawmakers worried the state could direct a massive contract to design and build the system to a single company by using very precise specifications in its request for proposals.
Consequently, the Senate Appropriations Committee attached a provision to the Department of Public Safety budget that would prohibit it from putting the radio project out to bid with "specifications that restrict the ability of interested parties to respond with proposals."
