• 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've never heard this before, but hearing it now, UPR583 on DPS Dallas, running 28 checks and the works. Guess someone might add TXDPS to Rail Police Channel line-up. Pretty cool catch - I've never heard it before.

In San Antonio I have heard them all over the place from DPS to all the Rail channels to Border Patrol Channels. Think they can pretty much get on any channels for there area

I remember mentioning this about 2 years ago, coming through San Antonio DPS. I thought it was strange also. I've also heard them on CBP/OBP repeaters. One of my PD buddies' father worked in the UPRRPD, and went all over the states. I never thought to ask him about it.
