• 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:

Hello folks!
I am (somewhat) of a newbie. Let me explain; I was, at one time, a licensed amateur radio operator (General License) my call was KC8TBY. Although my ham license has lagged I am getting back into the radio hobby slowly. I am looking into police/fire/EMS scanning at this point in my life. I don't even own a decent scanner yet BUT I am looking into purchasing either a Whistler TRX2 or, possibly, a Uniden BCD 536HP. I guess I just wanted to introduce myself and to say HI!!! PS: I'm from Grand Rapids, Michigan so, to all my fellow Wolverines: Go Blue! Go Spartans and GO LIONS!!
