• 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:

If you're listening to the VHF 154-159 range then the cars are too far away to hear since they don't use repeaters. For example, 155.670 is comms from a tower and can be heard for many miles while the mobiles or portables on 155.910 are line-of-sight which means the cars have to be close (a few miles away) to hear. Also, you want to turn the delay off because if you use a 2 second delay, you will miss comms since they use two different frequncies.

Also, you may have some better luck posting this in the PA state forum. This forum is for live scanner feeds. Some folks from PA may never check this section of the forums.
