    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:

Just a quickie to help one understand how the TBirds use their radios.

Lead (#1) talks on VHF and monitors UHF; Solo's talk on UHF and monitor VHF. This way Lead can talk to his group and not interfere with Solo's transmissions to each other and Visa Versa (?) You can often hear lead do a quick status check of everyone and you will hear 2,3 and 4 answer on VHF and then 5 and 6 answer on UHF.
