• 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:

Wow.. I don't know if any of you managed to catch it yesterday afternoon, Mobile ESSO had a chopper (Blue Ray 35) in the air all afternoon along with 6 ground units following someone. It was interesting to listen to. I had to turn off the scanner about 5pm so didn't hear how the operation ended.

ESSO also had several units operating on interstate I-10 between I-65 and the Mississippi state line. I did hear a bust go down that resulted in a 2 kilo brick of cocaine being found. As the deputy that made the find told it, he was just about to turn the subjects loose when he asked about a speaker box in the car. Just for grins he had the K-9 smell it and the dog went nuts. Another two runners bit the dust.

MPD was just as busy on Events 1 and 2. They were running a couple of operations.

Soo... Scanner listening in Mobile yesterday was quite interesting. I thourghly enjoyed it.

Not trying to be critical but I would be very careful describing what you heard. First of all, it's illegal according to the FCC. Second, it's the major reason that law enforcement begins using encryption. Just a thought.....

Read your post and then went and thought about it. For several hours actually. Read through a couple of other threads that touched upon the issues you raised and thought it about it some more. Came in here and heavily edited the original post.

Point taken...
