    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:

Never quite sure if I should post here or Weather forum. From my location today in Central Iowa, SW is terrible, so I thought I would do a little NOAA DX'ing. It's an off shoot hobby for me, along with SAME event code's, I have posted over the years on those topics, so I won't bore anyone!

Anyway today was exceptionally good, sitting in my backyard with just a Uniden BC125AT, and an assortment of antennas, I was able to pull in 300-350 miles, in all direction's. Station's on all 7 freq. (sometime's multiple). Best part was the clarity on many of them, 3-5 bars. I even manged to snag a few 300 watt stations (as opposed to the 1000 watt one's). My antennas were a special cut Smiley for the Wx band, the Diamond rhc77a, and a Maldol telescoping one. All were pretty equal, the Smiley did a little better though---not much. Just good condition's today in the Mid-West. Mike
