• 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:

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but it appears that the Sherman Fire Department has made someone mad.

Periodic radio key-ups with Bevus & Butt-head, Various musical songs about revenge and oh yes, Adult erotica has been aired over the Sherman Fire Dispatch channel. Fortunately the responsible yo-yo did it today for a very long time, Long enough for someone to triangulate him. Hopefully Sherman fire has sought the help of the FCC Enforcement team and this mambo brained idiot is brought to Justice.

Y'all might want to keep a listen for it - While it is utterly disgusting, it does pass the time. But I'd really like to read about him on the KXII website.

It might be tough, but the offender can be found. It would take a real smart fox to outsmart a persistent foxhunter. It's a shame people don't realize how many people they endanger when they start fooling around with public safety systems.

We have had similar issues in the DFW area with some in Public Safety but more so in the Ham community. Several of us put lots of miles on the tires. We did get the source. It has been nice not to hear the foul language and music.
