• 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:

As posted above, this is now official. There will be a meeting Sunday, February 12, 2017, at Davanni's Pizza, Bloomington, from 4:30 PM to 6 PM. The street address is 8605 Lyndale Ave S, Bloomington, MN 55420, Phone 952-888-6232. To give people a general sense of where this is, it is a few blocks south of I-494 and a few blocks east of I-35W. They also assured me that they still have free wifi.

Please note that there is a group before us from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. If you arrive prior to 4:30 PM, Davannis staff may still be performing clean up.

If anybody is interested in an official (or unofficial) talk in frequency, I can probably line up 146.700. The Minneapolis PL tones is 127.3. Please let me know if that is of interest to you. Home

Please consider bringing your equipment to show off to others. I am always interested to see how each receiver performs on the ARMER system.

As always, if someone wants to post this on the 146.760 Saturday morning net or the 146.850 Sunday evening net, that would be just fine. I can do it or, if someone here wants to volunteer to do it, please let me know.

Okay, Superbowl 51 is behind is now. This is just a reminder that our meeting is this coming Sunday. As always, this will be informal. Just stop in, have some dinner, complain about the weather, and talk about the hobby.

Was there enough of a turnout to have another? I wanted to be there, but of course - I became ill during the afternoon and didn't want to spread this to others. Thanks for setting these up!!!

Was there enough of a turnout to have another?...
From my perspective, yes, very much so. I actually prefer when the numbers aren't huge. It seems like when the turnout is a lot of people, there ends up being two, or more, simultaneous conversations going on and you end up missing stuff. I just know that at the end of the meeting I leave knowing that I learned something valuable to the hobby.

Our next meeting may well be in the north metro area. I think that having one on that side of the area will be good. For my money, if we decided to have one near a location of interest, that would be fine, too. For example, I rarely go to Action Radio or Radio City very often any more. If we selected a place to meet for a meal, near Action Radio or Radio City, I might be inclined to stop in at those establishments.
