    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:

Last December I bought a Radio Shack Pro 404, mostly for railroad scanning. Anyone else use it for this purpose? On the VHF High Band, it has frequency steps in 12.5 kHz, does that mean it will be compatible when the narrow band mandate goes into effect next year? It really helps me when listening to rail traffic when watching trains, and I really like it. What will the bandwidth for AAR channels be? Will it be 6.25, 7.5, or 12.5 kHz?

Any help would be appreciated.
