• 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:

The expiration date is correct. Looks like the chief failed
to renew. If your local, you might give then a buzz and
leave then know....

Are they IDing as the WPPZ664? That's a widely used TIS freq, which may be now covered under a new license by a new company.

I sent the city an email last night. I checked tonight and no response. I'll wait exactly 9 days and if no response I'll file an FCC complaint and see what they say. I'll be sure to add in my complaint that perhaps the state took over the city's information AM station, but I have my doubts.

In all the years I have monitored the station, I don't recall station ID being presented. Though, now that I think of it they may and it would be law to do so. I'll monitor again and see.

This is a station that's advertised on road signs for information on highway closures and such.

Pretty unreal the damn mayor can give police like a 20k raise and not renew a radio license in four years.

Still no email response. It was just a simple email too. I said this link shows your license is expired and that you should fix it. The email was sent to the city manager.
