    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:

I know Newark has for years and still currently uses VHF 155.190 for dispatch and normal ops. Today while driving I noticed what appears to be a digital antenna on the back of one of the cruisers, the antenna was black about 4-6in high and about 3in round, and it was on the right rear of the trunk. It looks as if it maybe a digital or something. Just curious if Newark is changing their system or if maybe it could be for a MDT. It was car 32 of reference.
