• 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:

But the University IT guy 'knows all about radio.' Meh.
That's likely what happened.

Several of the UC campuses still have dedicated or at least part time radio guys (me included). Not sure about the CSU system. I'll have to ask them. It is all under the IT heading now, good or bad.

Smaller campuses rely on an IT guy who might have it as a collateral duty, and even then, most of the real work gets contracted out. I suspect that is what happened here. Someone set up the system for them. Guy said it was OK, and the bill was paid.
Likely would have continued on unless someone complained.

CSU Hayward is up the hill a bit, so they'd have a pretty commanding view of the bay area, kind of hard for them to not notice someone else was on the frequency.

If somebody can repost a paragraph from the original article with a proper attribution to the source I'd appreciate it.

Posting the compete text without any attribution to the source likely violates some sort of copyright law.

Gentlemen,

What was the resolution to this issue? Did CSUEB change the freq, turn off the repeater, etc?

I'm a ham and student over there and am concerned about emergency preparedness on campus, as well as being concerned about their plans for an EOC, etc.

I would urge you to get involved and talk to the appropriate people. Like the guys above posted, usually campuses do not have a dedicated radio person, so having a student who knows about it and can advise them would be even better. Just make sure you know what you are doing.
When I was a student at CSU Maritime, that's what I did. For the most part, they were following the rules, but there were a few things that needed to be ironed-out.
