• 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 got the Radio Shack Pro 97 for my birthday this week. It was pre-programed (thank goodness) with Orlando/Orange County Sheriff/FL HWY Patrol and a few other things that I'm still trying to figure out. The last time I owned a scanner from Radio Shack it was 8 channels and I had to go out and buy the specific crystal. So the whole trunking thing is something that I need to do a bunch of reading on. But I would sure like to get a short cut explanation to see if I can zero in on just Orange County Sheriff Sectors 5 and 6...which is the I-Drive and Disney area. I promise that I will continue to read and figure it out...but when you get to be my age, some of these new devices take a while to master. Usually, I find one of the young neighbor kids who help me out...and I do learn to do it myself...with the basics.

Anyway...if you have an idea, let me know, otherwise it's back to reading the great websites for info.
