• 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:

Sorry if this was covered elsewhere, but if mbelib captures Opensky packets, and the DV Dongle (with AMBE vocoder) hardware and software is fully documented and available, couldn't mbelib use the DV Dongle to decode/monitor Opensky? Wouldn't this also solve the "patent issue" with the mbelib AMBE software decoding? (kudos to dsdauthor for your efforts to date!)

I think they need raw audio samples of Open Sky so they can develop a means to decode it.

And yes, the work being done is great indeed. If it will ever be possible to monitor Open Sky it will come from computer software, not a scanner.
