• 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:

There are literally thousands of possible radio channels on which you'll find this kind of activity. If you know the name of a production film company, or a TV production facility then you could look them up on the FCC database and find out where their operating frequencies are. Same goes for a TV station. Start at Home | FCC.gov and look for various prompts, and also use the database that's part of this Board. Some companies, rather than use frequencies assigned to them, will rent radios from a rental company and use frequencies licensed to the rental outfit. It's also possible for these outfits to use wired intercom systems which have no radio component, but then again some intercom systems do use radio as part of their operations. It can be a complicated subject but if you dig into it you'll find a lot to listen to.

Here in the states, or on the other side of the pond? If other side of the pond, try the UK forums further down the forums page

The crews could be using unlicensed services, radios leased and operated under the lessee's license, or even cell phones. Each crew would have investigated, individually.

Sorry about that; I should have noted the OP's location, but except for the FCC reference I'd think that the situation in the UK for the subject being discussed is pretty much the same as in the US.
