• 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:

The city of New York has applied to the FCC, to obtain a special radio license that would allow for testing on UHF-T Band frequencies, falling on TV channel 16. More information can be found at the FCC Web site.

In addition, there will be some permanent changes made to the NYPD radio system:

Application 1

Application 2

Ron,

Both Applications 1 and 2 hyperlinked above show up as STAs. How do you reach the conclusion that "permanent changes" are being made?

Under the "Admin" tab, click on the "Justification" link, and you can read the letter they submitted to the FCC for each application.
