    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 am preparing to travel up to Snyder Co, Selinsgrove and am taking my Baofeng UV-5R to scan. I noticed Snyder County still utilizes a conventional VHF dispatch system? How is it still legal under the latest P25 standards? The reception on their radios must be poor?

Analog systems are still "Legal" as any others. There is no law that says you must switch from analog systems. Just has to be narrowbanded from older wideband.

Everything in the database lists narrowband. Now the public works channels are FM but probably cause no one has confirmed if they did narrow. But by law they would had to have done it by now.
