• 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:

Might be an interesting topic. It's not all that hard; to start, follow these simple steps

a. Go the the Wiki main article (that's wiki-speak for 'page') and register if you haven't done so already. If you haven't, in the upper right hand corner, you should see 'create an account or login'. Click on that and follow the instructions. It's free.

b. From the main article, download the item on Quick guide to editing. You will find that it has some similarities to HTML, VB and C all wrapped into one.Wiki markup language is HTML aware, but doesn't quite have all the tags and such.

c. I always suggest beginning your coding in Notepad or other text editor (Word sometimes adds wierd characters at the end of the document or line, even if you save it as a .txt file).
Or, you can use your own user area (which is accessible by clicking your userid - which is in red - and you will be brought to the page editor)

d. An article already exists on online scanners, so that is the logical place from which to link your page. When you are ready, add the article title to the page using brackets (you'll see this in the Quick Guide). When the page is resolved, the article title shows up in red.
Use Windows Clipboard or other utility to copy your page from wherever you've been developing it to the page editor for the article you've just tried to refer to in the online scanners article.

Done.

Please email me offline if you have questions. My email is ka3jjz@netscape.com and I'll do my best to guide you along. The Quick Guide doesn't have some of the easier tricks, and there are a few other hints we'll use as your page progresses. Thanx for contributing!
