• 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:

I listened in today. It is all just codenames and numbers. Anyone know what to make of it? I have a recording of it if anyone is interested.

Even though it was short, still cool to listen to! I've got them in my 996, haven't a clue to what they are talking about, but still cool to listen to!

I've been recording and trimming my scanning lately since I did some creative stuff setting up. I'll be uploading an organized archive to my site sooner or later.

Yeah, I know about the system. I actually came across that while scanning (which is why I didn't get the whole picture so to speak)

Stavro, you'll have better luck asking in the Washington forum.

I have two more clips. Nothing interesting AT ALL, but this was more of an opportunity for me this time to try cleaning up recordings from the scanner.

What vehicle?:

Cleaned up:

10-4 How do you copy?:

Cleaned up:

If I post anything again it will actually be interesting.

Just remember that the postal police and postal inspectors are two different organizations. The police are uniformed federal police officers that provide security for postal property and facilities. Postal inspectors investigate postal offenses and civil matters relating to the Postal Service and are generally non-uniformed.
