• 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:

The best way to program that model of scanner is with the data cable, one of the programming software packages, and a subscription to this site. (There are many other threads on the programming of these radios.)

With your location, you will want to load in the statewide radio system, MPSCS, which Macomb County and Detroit use for most public safety communications, and making scan lists of your preferred agencies.
