• 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:

Hi Guys,
Just wanted everyone to know, that in addition to the scanner feeds I have up, here on Radio Reference, I have started a group on Yahoo for incidents happening around Connecticut. This is not a for profit group and it it up to keep us all informed as to things going on around us. This is pretty much as a hobby and for fun. Everyone is invited to join and you can also post incidents that you hear and are confirmed. We can all watch the news and see stuff then, but this group is for stuff that hasnt hit the news yet, etc. I am aslking that anyone posting only post incidents that they hear themselves not 2nd or 3rd hand information. I am also asking that incidents be no later than 20 or 30 minutes old. Think of this site as a club, where we keep each other informed as to active incidents. Also, please use common sense and dont place Swat, or Narcotics or other sensitive information out there because it will not be forwarded to everyone until the incident is over. We are not putting public safety personnel at risk. The bords are moderated 24/7/365 so we do go over each call. Also please do not post info from other services such as 1RWN or BNN, etc on the site. You can sign up at the following location: policefireemsincidents : Police Fire and EMS Incidents
Please have fun aand Happy Scanning!!!

Joe

Sounds the same as the CTNotification Yahoo group.

Joe started this group to keep serious scanner listeners together and aprised of local incidents as they happen. No rebroadcasting of scanner audio or anything like that. Just keeping those in the group up to date and aware. So far, it has been great! No joking, no fooling around, just incidents as they happen. That is it. I highly recommend anyone who is serious about scanning in and around CT. to join. NO BS, just good ol fashion incident reporting.

it might be chris, I do stuff from all over CT unless it's a major out of state incident. It's just a way for a bunch of us to link together and give each other info as to things that are going on. I heard someone or actually a few people had twttier feeds up, but I've been on twitter like twice. once to set up my name and then again like a year later. who knows maybe I'll check them out.
