    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 Search Idea -- Search only within "My Counties" list

Here's a new idea I just thought of. I like how the current database search feature allows you to select multiple states with a given freq/tone combination. I would like to see a new search feature to be implemented in both the Identified Users search and also in the FCC License search. It would poll only the list of counties in your My Counties list and search for results. For example, where I live in Maryland, the surrounding counties are in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. When I do a search, I have to search all four states and look for specific counties. But I have all of those counties in the list of "My Counties" (myRR). It would be really neat if there was a search box that accept the freq and tone combination and search both Identified and FCC licenses within those counties to provide results. On a side note, it would be cool if there was a Tone-Only search as well, since that sometimes helps in determining who a user is, but that would be supplementary. This kind of search feature would be a great asset to identifying radio users and, in turn, improving the RR database as a whole.

What do you think?
