• 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:

I've noticed that other states are into updating their databases. Please if you know of any frequency changes, or info that is definitely wrong in our state database, submit the info so we know our information is up to date, this will help us all!

I guess this could kind of fall into the updating concept. A while back someone had posted regarding lack of business band frequencies in the db. That got me thinking, and this thread reminded me, how come we don't have a listing of amateur repeaters as well. While there are other sites out there with this info, I find that many seem to be out of date or older information and often times, at least in my area, the listed repeaters are no longer on air or the pl tone is wrong. Perhaps its just me, but I think the frequent updates that are taken from actual users information on this website would be very helpful in keeping up to date information. Skywarn is listed in the db, but that in my mind still kinda leaves out any other repeaters. What's everyone think...more importantly what do the admin's think of this?

I always update the database with any changes that take place in the counties I monitor. I hate when people post a thread about a change of freqs but don't care to update the database and I'm the one that ends up sending in the new info like I did with the Belleville PD freqs recently rebanded. Just sent the update, should be changed in the DB soon.
