• 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:

I notice a lack of fire department information listed in San Juan County. I assume there are fire departments and they use radios.

Unfortunately some areas dont have user submitted data which that what radio reference is.

I would use the fcc license search, and try multiple names, San juan, county of etc and go through it. A scanner in search will also probably be quicker for common used.

I'm working on that now. I'm moving out to SW Colorado next month. I'm trying to get an idea of the area radio systems,,,, realizing that the database may or may not be accurate.
