• 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:

Is anyone using two tone or Quick Call to decode crime Alerts?

Whereas they use two tone signaling to simulcast on
all the zones "general alarms" for BOLOS it
should be possible to use this for alerting.

Seems to me it would be a good way to cut down on the
need to listen to all that "other" chatter.

Anyone have the tone pair?
