    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:

Was curious if anyone uses fire tone out for ringtones, or any other kind of interesting ringtones. If so, where do you get them?

Thanks!!

You can find stuff from the show Emergency, many places. Most anything else, you would have to make yourself.

Various sirens are available, if you look.

I used the program audicity to make mine, I just made the fires tone for one second and the second tone for 3 seconds, set my phone at the fd and called it from the next room, its good stuff.

Could you record fire tones from your scanner and then convert them into whatever file your cellphone uses for ringtones?

absolutely, most modern phones use an Mp3 format for ring tones and alert tones, using Audicity along with the Lame add-on you can convert the audio from one format to another. so if you record in .avi you can convert in to mp3 or vice versa. That program is awesome.

Maybe the OP could try that.
