• 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:

Just a heads up that the 2011 RARSFest will be held
Saturday April 23, 2011 from 8am to around 4pm in the Jim Graham
Building at the State Fairgrounds in West Raleigh.
The official RARS website about the event can be found below:
RARSFest
I am gonna do my absolute best to be in attendance this year
and I hope to see you all there as well.
We will be having a "Mini NC RR.com Member Meetup" at RARSFest
and will be using 146.535Mhz Simplex analog to coordinate meeting up
.
Feel free to plug that frequency into your ham gear or scanner.
Hope to see you there!
Happy Monitoring

I am planning on being there when the doors open at 8am. I have only 2m analog capability for now. If we can get a simplex freq picked out beforehand I can have it ready to go.

The local club that started down my way a few years ago and fizzled out used 146.535 simplex when we traveled as a group somewhere.....

146.535 is good for me too. I'm planning on being there. Maybe not right at 8:00 but soon there after.

Please post here or email me directly if you want to be part of the
NC RR.com meetup. That way we can get a general idea of how many
should be attending.
Thanks!

I'm in! I'll be there for the meet-up! Should be there between 08;30 and 09:00. We might want to mention our ETA's so we can tell when would be a good time to meet up.

I had everything lined up and ready to go, but due to a problem with the finance company on my wife's car, we had to pay them over 700.00 at one time for a supposed past due payment that was paid before the due date to keep her car from getting repoed.

I was really ticked that I couldn't afford to go..

I havent been to a RARSFest in over 10 years. Benson always had a good one too....of well, maybe I will get to go to RARSFest in 2012....
