• 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:

Considering that applicable laws in the United Kingdom are probably significantly different than they are in the US, I don't see YouTube or MySpace as being any more of a thread to scanning/monitoring than anything else we ever discuss here.

Nec, the first two are the same radio. The 3rd is a dispatch console. The fourth looks like a recording of a scanner feed and the last one could be a beer truck with a GPS going by a Ferrie dealership. Better stay away from that Youtube. H:lol:ser

A great many antique radios have the dial segment between 1600 and 1800 Kc (before KHz) marked "police" so am I missing something here?

Wanterbee or wannabee, some new species of apis mellifera?

You got to check him out.
What, pray tell, makes you at all qualified to accuse another person of being a "wannabe?" What sort of wannabe are we even referring to here?

Edit: NEC... i have a scanner... does that make me a wannabe? No it is because i enjoy listening to it and i also am a fire explorer. What makes you think that hes a wannabe just because he has a scanner and he drove by a car dealership, and hes got his truck decked out so what, it was a couple radios (doesnt make him a wannabe). If you would take the time in your head to read his notes he recorded the one of the 396T just to show the good audio quality with the 800 MHz system. My god... some people are just so ignorant. Maybe he has a scanner because he works as a vollunteer firefighter or a police officer? NEC = get your head out of your @$$ and do something other then trying to ridicule people for what they do.
