• 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:

LightSquared to Invest in Next Generation Push-to-Talk for Public Safety -- Posted July 26, 2011

LightSquared's next generation satellite service will continue to ensure seamless communications among multiple law enforcement and public safety agencies at the federal, state, tribal and local levels. These agencies have come to depend on the reliable interoperable communications capabilities that LightSquared provides.

As part of this plan, LightSquared will:

* Replace the current LightSquared public safety devices at no cost and continue to support older devices through 2014.
* Work with the public safety community to design next generation LightSquared devices that meet the rugged standards demanded by public safety workers who work in a wide range of hostile conditions and environments.
* Continue to support the Satellite Mutual Aid Radio Talkgroup (SMART) program on which public safety agencies nationwide rely to communicate.
