• 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:

Is there any way to block out all the alerts except tornado warnings? This thing drives me nuts. I've gotten to where I leave it off.

Thanks for the information. That's just great. Mine has gone off ALL afternoon. I feel like busting this thing up with a sledge hammer and shipping it to James Spann. I would if I didn't think it would have the Hoover Bomb Squad showing up because of it. I should have known better.

Gotta get you a better SAME wx radio there dave and put the hammer in the closet!. I have the Rat Shack one and it only tells me when its local and probably cost less than the unidens. Only issue with the SAME radios these days is they have the FIPS code for tuscaloosa county screwed up and it dont work but according to james spann the powers that be are working on it.

I have had a WR100 for several months, and do NOT care for it. I replaced a RadioShack unit that worked faithfully for years til it gave up the ghost. Both had SAME, and worked, HOWEVER-- the WR100, when it "goes off" stays "OPEN" for a fixed amount of time, i think its 8 minutes, unless you are nearby to physically reset it. The RS unit reset (muted) itself as soon as NOAA transmitted the end of message signal, so all you heard was the actual message of interest. With the Midland, it drones on and on until the time expires. (I know, I know... but trust me, for a variety of reasons, it isn't always convenient to get to the radio and hit the reset.)

My two cents worth.
