• 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:

Narrow band?

Thinks will probably work without any changes (although their audio level may be lower). If your scanner supports it (many do) you may want to reprogram their frequencies to use narrow-band FM (NFM is often what it's called), which may restore the audio level and prepare you for the future when the FCC starts allowing licenses to use the new channels the narrower bandwidth is supposed to open up.
