    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:

* The 399-foot transport truck carrying a 380 ton low-level radioactive steam generator from the San Onofre nuclear power plant to Utah

* A nuclear steam generator is slowly making its way across states on a top-secret route from San Onofre to Utah, where it will be disposed of.

* Haul a lightly contaminated 750,000-pound piece of the plant's old steam generator

* The generator piece is painted with a thick coat of blue to prevent pieces of steel from chipping or flaking off.

* Three semi-trucks will haul the carriage—one in front and two in the back—at 15 mph. The journey to the dump site in Utah is expected to take three weeks.

* Fortunately, with 192 tires and 48 axles, the Perkins trailer is up to the task.

* Officials say that the radiation levels are small enough that standing next to it for an hour would be less exposure than getting dental x-rays.

This 192-wheel supertrailer is hauling nuclear waste across California
