    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'm curious how many PSR-500s have been built/sold. Anyone think it's a good idea to list our serial numbers in a "running list" to gain insight into this and perhaps as a theft deterrent/recovery mechanism?

I believe I had seen something similar on Rich Wells' site years ago in the form of "owners clubs" for various radios... The serial number of my PSR-500 is on record with both GRE and my dealer. Defaced serial numbers basically render a radio worthless in terms of resale/repair. So what's the risk?

EDIT: If someone's hawking a stolen radio at, for instance, a hamfest, I'd like to know RR members might recognize it by its serial number.

EDIT: OT: I'm afraid your signature is a bit out-of-date.
