    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:

Many people have gotten away from notification services like IPN due to costs and the strict rules they must adhere to when dispatching. If you want reliable notifications and news, join Twitter. Its free, you can send/receive alerts on your phone, computer, or tablet, plus two-way interaction with others in your community.

First, we need to know what area you live in/want to get alerts for. If any of the services does not provide adequate coverage, you're gonna waste your money...

Lets say in an area like Boston, would Ialerts1 offer good service in this area. I hear good things about this co. ID be willing to pay for service in that area. Does anyone have thoughts on this particular co?
