• 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:

efforts to establish a emergency communication channel to improve safety and response time are being hindered by old-fashioned competition. The state is part of a larger battleground between two communication companies offering different versions of an 800-MHz system.
Motorola Inc. and M/A-Com compete to supply radio service to Oklahoma cities and private utilities. The difference in radio systems creates compatibility problems between the Motorola system used by Tulsa and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the M/A-Com system used by Oklahoma City, Broken Arrow, Bixby, Glenpool and Jenks.
"Every state is a battleground. It's no secret," said Chuck Shaughnessy, vice president of operations for M/A-Com.
M/A-Com just won a $2 billion contract to install an 800-MHz system and VHF system in New York, Shaughnessy said.
Motorola, meanwhile, leads M/A-Com in installing state systems, said Steve Gorecki, a company spokesman. Gorecki said Motorola has built 29 of 32 systems across the nation

I just like to call it "great minds think alike".

Others may not agree. ;)
