• 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:

I just wanted to make sure everyone knows the date has been changed to Oct. 15th due to some conflicts.

I liked the ideas people had to make the meeting more organized and I welcome your help with that.

Chuck also suggested that people should bring items to sell or give away so if you have any radio equipment that not being used, bring it with you and bring $$$ if you want to make a deal. I am bringing a shortwave radio and some portable radio antennas.

I should have the location confirmed latter today or by tomorrow by the latest.

Meeting Location Confirmed for Oct. 15th

I will send out an anouncement later but I wanted to confirm the location for October 15th is the Culver's in St. Paul near I-94. We have the meeting room reserved from 18:00 - 20:00 hrs.

This will also be a mini swap meet to see how that goes.

I hope some helpers are planning on how to organize us better as a group.

I think a good start with "sort-of" organizing the get together would be if folks submitted items they would like to discuss, questions they might have, or help they may need. Maybe someone would like some help with programming a certain scanner? Maybe a quick discussion about how the digital system in the Minnesota works. If things like this were mentioned prior to the meeting, it might help others who are attending to bring the right equipment/software/cables to help, and to organize a list of questions/topics that folks might have to discuss.

Just some thoughts. What do you think?

Also, I might be able to get my hands on dry-erase board (roughly 4'x2') and an easel to put it on.
