• 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:

Any time I’m in Maine I get fantastic handheld coverage off of the Whitten Hill, Granite Hill, and Cook Hill towers. South of the Whitten Hill coverage area on I-295 (South of Freeport, generally speaking) portable coverage is much less. Is this just a reality of the system? Using a portable on a bus I had very spotty coverage from the state line to Brunswick.

Yes, I believe the system was engineered for mobile coverage, not portable coverage. Being inside a vehicle will degrade your performance even more.
