• 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:

We are going to be holding a meeting soon, to meet other scanner enthusiasts in the Rockford area.

Please let us know what days and times you are more than likely free, so we have a rough idea on when to set up the meetings.

Hmmmm grrrrrrrr. My Goodness! The "Lodge" has some competition?

;)
Hi,

competition......nope. just offering a club in the Rockford area. :)

We would like if CARMA and our group got together sometime and talked and shared some ideas. But we have yet to hear from them.

Theres alot of activity in the Rockford area on the airwaves, and Chicago is too far away for a group in the Rockford area.

We wanted to focus a group solely in the Winnebago County area. (Rockford)

Competition is always good in the semi still free market:roll:. Good luck guys! But I'm kinda stuck in between Chicago and Rockford.

More power to ya, we are always ready and willing to help others create groups and get-togethers.

We have a lot of information on our Profiles page for the area and if you start a Yahoo Group I will be happy to upload copies to your group of our Profiles for the area. We prefer to upload these files ourselves, so that when we update them we can replace the old files with the new ones. (One member cannot delete the files uploaded by another...)

I did get your email, and will respond with some tips about what we have learned in the last 20 years or so of club operations. I also know that some of our members live in the Rockford area.

If you are a member of the CARMA Yahoo List feel free to post a message there about your club, perhaps some of the 1500 or so subscribers might be interested. I get to the area a couple times a month myself so I will be joining.

Good luck and Happy Scanning!

Hi Scannerman,

You need to re-register. Sorry for the inconvenience.

There was a database crash. So I had to restart it from scratch again.



ATTENTION EVERYONE: You need to Re-Register on RockfordScanner.com

Hi Scott,

The site is not down. Have you tried it with Firefox?

I been on the site all day, several others as well. Sounds like it may be your computer, internet explorer.

You might want to try to clear your cookies in your internet explorer. That may help you.

I must have missed this post the first time around...

There is also a scanner group centered on McHenry County, I think they have occasional get-togethers in Algonquin or LITH. They used to have a web site, but that appears to be down. Try them at
MHCMG : Mc Henry Co Monitoring Group

Must be something on your end. It works fine on my Mac, my Vista Home Premium (using MSIE) machine as well as XP.
