    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'm researching the Locution system and am wondering what anyone thinks about it? How has it worked out, how does it sound, any problems?

I'd also like to talk to anyone that is within receive range of it. I'd like to stream it back to me for a couple of days to listen for myself, and can provide the software to do it. I'll make the link available for everyone to listen if someone is close enough to provide the PC and scanner for a few days.

Any interest?

I, for one HATE it! I've listened to it now for about 4 months. My thoughts are the following: If this can't "pronounce" certain things & a REAL live dispatcher has to step in what good is it? I've heard many calls when the communicator on duty will step in to clairify calls or correct info given by Locution. Also, as a former long time firefighter I find that I'm less apt to pay attention to Locution because of it's "monotonal" sound. Not sure how effective it is I'll leave that for someone that's active as I'd be interested in hearing what current public saftey personell think?
