• 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:

Doubtful. The only changes I see from the original document I read last year was that there are more ICALL repeaters online statewide. This is on the last page of the document.
I noticed that, but maybe they want to crackdown on some of the 'unauthorized' uses. seems I have heard Regional, Ops, and Event channels all used for things other then as listed.

I've heard the Event TGs used for surveillance on many different occasions. as far as the Ops channels I believe it's up to the discretion of the main dispatch center. I read that there is a phone number for agencies to call UCAN to get permission to use some particular TGs that way. At least here in UtCo I rarely hear the abuses happen but I can't say what happens elsewhere.
