• 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:

Wow just started using this DSD and unitracker and a single dongle from RTL-SDR. 26$ and it blows my 500$ Uniden out of the water..It is insane how clear I get both P25 and NXDN. So far so good I may need some help soon. like replacing my stream using this.. but so far this is crazy! My Uniden is silent when I am picking up traffic with this. this is crazy

"Welcome to the SDR party, pal..." to paraphrase a popular line from "Die Hard." :D

And yes it's pretty amazing what can be done with a "cheap USB TV tuner" these days and some decent well coded software.
