• 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 would like to see a listing of scanning/receiver clubs by state with contact information provided (e.g. E-mail address, web-address, etc.). Is this something that would fit within the scope and guidelines of RR.com ?? I hope so. Reading about the hobby by reading posts, etc. and obtaining frequencies and all is great. I'm hoping that there are those out there that would be interested in seeing some of the radios that others have, hear about and maybe see some of the radios, radio modifications (legal ones only), reception accessories, antennas, amplifiers, batteries, cables (coax, audio, power, etc.) and/or hearing what certain radio signals sound like can be very valuable to almost any hobby enthusiast. Is such a "section" within this site appropriate and possible, etc.? I for one would love to find out if there is a club nearby to where I live and work.

Ken, you've got a good idea there.

As far as I know, down here in central Florida, there's no scanner/swl clubs. There's more than likely a ham club or two. Me thinks that a club would be of interest to many, and like you posted, with jpgs, mods, etc. (also helping those locals who are having problems programming their scanners'.) Let's see how many show an interest in your idea; Hopefully, many.

Not that I am aware of in SE WI. and thanks to sites like this, there is really no need for it. Then again, if you really want to belong to some club, you can always start your own even if you're the sole member.

The collaboration page has links to a pretty inactive Yahoo group for the San Diego area, but Socalscan is VERY active - and there appears to be a milcom cousin to that group which is similarly active

best regards..Mike
