• 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:

There's a lot of new MDT freqs in LA County added for sheriffs, LAPD, LAC fire and even the MTA. If MDT frequencies are unscannable why bother even posting them?

I know there are a lot of agencies that rely heavily on MDT messaging, such as LA County Sheriff's department, but there still is no known way of reading these MDTs.

And out of an odd possibility, If they ARE being posted, then there may be someone out there that is listening in on them.

Posting non-voice data or telemetry information for things like MDTs is within RR guidelines.

While I don't know if anyone has managed to monitor them, at the very least having the information in the db helps confirm usage of licensed frequencies for agencies for anyone trying to tie-up frequencies.
