• 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 remember one year back in the 90's, I called in I was passed by and attempting to catch a signal 23 over 80 mph. It appeared to be a convertable with the top down, blacked out and displaying a single red light out the front. The jig was up when I called in the personalized plate of SANTA.

Another year, same dispatcher, I was home and called in that my neighbors were out of town and I just saw someone run out of their house carrying a sack of stuff. He jumped into an unknown type vehicle and fled eastbound. That jig was up when she asked for his physical description.
