• 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:

He has a PSR-500 and Win500, plus a premium subscription. You have all the tools you need to download data from the databases here; however, there are holes which can be filled in by purchasing the Philly Scanner Guide sold by Scanner Master. In addition, the Phillyscanner Yahoo group is a huge resource.

Between the 2, you will have all you could ever need 73 Mike

There are certain talkgroups that are not on the RR database. I won't go into the reasons here, but if you search this forum, you will find them. As I understand it there are also some Montgomery county freq changes that haven't made it here yet, but would be found on the Philly Scanner guide, which is an eBook (using PDF) sold by Scanner Master. It's a lifetime subscription.

If you haven't already joined Yahoo groups you will need to do this (free). At the same time, you will need to disable your marketing preferences to avoid the junk mail Yahoo sends you when you subscribe. I'm not at home at the moment, but I think I still have that file on my laptop. Send me a note at ka3jjz@netscape.com and ask for the antispam document.

Once complete, go to:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PhillyScanner/

and hit the join button. You will need to tell Joe a little about yourself, and you should be in good shape in short order.
