• 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:

New Member - Cannot Contact the Feed Broadcaster

Not open for further replies.


Sep 8, 2011
I am a long time listener, and recently created a user account, and I am considering supporting the site with a paid subscription when I have the extra money.
Let me start by saying what a great service this site provides, especially in an emergency situation like we are in this week. Everyone on Facebook I provided the link to also thinks this is an invaluable resource to know whats going on around you. So congratulations to Radioreference.com for providing us with this service.

I wanted to contact my local feed broadcaster so that I could learn a little bit about his broadcasting setup and maybe get some pointers so that I could myself provide a feed in the future.
When I try to contact the broadcaster the site tells me I do not have permission.
Do I need to be a paid member to contact a broadcaster, or is there a time limit on the account before I can use this feature?

Thanks in advance.
