• 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:

Tonite at 5:00 pm WHIO channel 7 is doing a Wastebusters Report on the Money spent in Ohio on the Marcs system. Previews look to be very interesting, seems they are attacking the $ spent on the system and the problems that have come at the steep cost of the system. hoser147

Hopefully someone in the area can digitally record it; I'd love to see it. I'll probably hurl, though, when I hear about how much of our money has been thrown into the /\/\otorola Tax Money Incinerator.

Well I just got a chance to watch the tape tonite wasnt much too it Taft was calling on a handheld and various agency units answered the wastebuster thing came into play with what started out as 150million $ progect turned into a 290something system however they didnt knock the system on the news report due to the fact that the radio system Ohio had was long outdated and the fact that the Twin towers and Katrina had massive comm failures. Actually it went back to when Vionovich was investigated on bidding of the system and no proof was found against him. So I guess where all good guys the money squeeze is on and maybe that will cure some of the encryption worries lol. Sorry I couldnt get back to you all sooner, Take care Good Scannin Hoser147
