• 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:

Does that apply to everything? I think CB died because of the idiots that took over and then killed the service. I suppose you could say "It's only illegal to kill someone if you are caught". NOT!!!! I know as long as there are humans left on this earth, there will always be some that feel laws are made to be broken. Yet, most of the laws are enacted to protect the innocent from the stupid and foolish.

Tried the software mod on my VX-2.
My favorite: the keypad-only sequence to open up 800 MHz Rx on my VX-1...once you correctly made it past the 13 steps! I wouldn't even call this a mod, because it was the same radio before and after. :lol:

EPIC FAIL! Innocent people can protect themselves from stupid and foolish, that's what guns are for. In the words of Robert A. Heinlein "A well armed society is a polite society."

Those laws are written to protect the stupid and foolish from themselves in direct conflict with Darwinian theory of adaptive evolution through survival of the fittest. We need chlorine in the gene pool, repeal those laws and remove warning labels, let nature take its course and we won't need the guns.

The FCC items in question are not laws, but rules and regulations. In the US, laws are enacted by elected officials. These rules and regs are made to prevent interference to communications, which, in a lot of instances, the transmission of is essential to life saving or law enforcement activities.

This brings me back to a time when the first "export" keypad programmable handhelds were finding their way to the US. I remember one enterprising soul who programmed the correct output freq for a local fire dept. repeater. He put the wrong input freq in it and was keying a police repeater instead. Since he couldn't hear the FD repeater key up, he started whistling into the radio and saying "hello, hello". The police dispatcher recognized the voice and made a frantic call to get the errant radio user off the air. I hope sabrescanner1 is sure of what he is doing.
