    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:

We knew this day would come as far as a switch from FM to NXDN. The Industry Standard will be NXDN. All of the train frequencies that I listen to in my area all have the emission on the FCC License NXDN even though they still operate FM for now. Just hope the scanners will catch up. DSD will work, having a scanner would be the best option.

Yes, CSX has begun testing NXDN Digital here in INDY. They have not switched over fully yet, but are testing on a couple of the not regularly used channels. From my understanding, they will start doing the yards before switching main roads.
