• 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:

:) Not a problem........YES These frequincies are public record. These radio are manufactured and sold for our hobbie and enjoyment. I'm sure someone else here @ RR will give us a more legal and /or technical explination.

No! Dept of public homeland thingy will kill you for downloading it.

Its common knowledge that the only use it has is to aid Al-Queda in their evil ways.

Yes. I wouldn't be posting code to this and other forums if I thought otherwise.
