• 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:

Knew Mike personally. Friends when I lived in Cleveland, OH. Corresponded from Georgia for the last 19 years.
The scanning community has lost a true friend. RIP Mikey. You will be missed.

Rest in peace Mike. I met Mike back when he used to run the ohioscan web site and stayed in touch ever since. A tremendous loss to the scanning community.

So sad to hear this. Mike's web site helped get me started with listening to air and milcom frequencies, which in turn helped guide me into my ATC career. Very influential. Rest in peace, Mike.

I am deeply saddend to hear of Mike's passing. I have exchanged information with him for many years. His knowledge of local milair was unsurpassed. He will be sorely missed among our ranks, but long remembered.
