• 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:

The Helo formerly known as Sherman Texas LifeStar

Only Sherman, Greenville and Decatur designate their birds as "Lifestar" Air Evac is the owner of lifestar (and has been for many years). The rep who goes to all the events to promote the Air Evac Lifeteam citizen enrollment plan was saying recently they were changing the call sign to make it easier on the dispatchers and make it less easy for some ears to decipher who is who. However if you go to AE's website, each Bird has a map of it coverage area along with the AE designator. Still its odd not to hear LIFESTAR-1 anymore. This will surely mess all the VFD's up.
