• 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 usually don't DX this time of year but decided to hook up the long wire antennas and tune around the bands. Coming through on LW right now:

153 khz, strong carrier but no audio
162 khz, France International with music and French talk, signal weak but readable, no fading noticed, the strongest of the bunch.
171 khz, weak audio
183 khz, Europe 1 coming in about the same level as France.
198 khz, Some muffled talk, presumed BBC but tough copy with the summer noise.
207 khz, strong carrier but no audio
216 khz, weak carrier
252 khz, Talk and music heard here but beacon interference is rough, can't tell if it's Ireland or Algeria.

Looks like my DX season has begun. Game on!
