    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:

I want to monitor a couple of split frequency systems in Mexico in January. Would like to hear from anyone using the PSR 800 on this type of system. TIA.

Traveling to Mexico

The truth is that at this time I'm not sure of what the current regulations are in Mexico. But having traveled with radios for the past 40 years a lot depends where you go and how you use them. As International Editor for the now defunct RCMA, I always advised that you had to use your head when you used the radios. The new radios look so much like phones and we don't transport contraband or drugs so I have no problem.

Well, you could set up talk groups with just the two frequencies in question repeated say ten or so times, then when talk stopped on one it would skip to the other at least for awhile. If you activated only that talk group it would follow it until the conversation ends, but I don't know if that would be practical.

I belonged to the "RCMA" many many years ago, great to see a post from someone in that era....I used to get the newsletter i enjoyed very much....We all then split up and created small scanning clubs around the country which now here in Chicago is "CARMA"....I think a guy named "Jerry Short" was a familiar name??.....
