• 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:

Does anyone have the A&B tones for the tone out alerts???
If you are talking about the alert tones, I am not sure those would activate the tone alerting on a scanner. They are not used to activate tone alerts within the department, but as audible alert tones for people who many have their radios turned down or be ignoring them while otherwise engaged in conversation. Much different from communities like Acushnet or Fairhaven who have alert tones that are used for pager activation and other alert activities.
