• 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:

Friend mentioned today that RDU has been cutting down on folks watching planes, taking pictures, and doing radio monitoring from the lounges. KE4ZNR, I know you used to do this (maybe still do). Anyone know the truth on this?

I have not been out to KRDU in a while due to my schedule being filled but the folks at the General Aviation Building have always been welcoming and open to us Aviation buffs. Of course they know me very well due to my extensive history there but they should be open to anyone that respects the few rules that they have.
You do have to remember that the General Aviation terminal can be rented out at any time and if it is we have to be respectful of those that have paid money to temporarily use it and defer to their event.
I might stop by G.A. sometime this next weekend and see how things look.

Was out at RDU GA terminal today, it'd been a while since I was out there, and found it's closed for renovation until fall of 2018. Guess the only place to watch planes at RDU, until then, is the observation deck. That may be why your friend had issues.
