• 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:

Is the Environment Canada weather transmitter down? (XMJ 225 - CN Tower)
I haven't been hearing anything on 162.4 today, however I'm hearing weather from Collingwood on 162.475 and Buffalo on 162.550, so I don't think I have any equipment issues.
There is no mention of any problems on the Environment Canada's website.

The message has been passed along to the WeatherRadio guys, it'll be fixed by Monday. I called a friend who works the weather desk, he said this is the first anyone has called him about it... Goes to show how little people listen!

Or the fact that no one knows who to contact.
Hmmmm....if it's like eastern Ontario, the contact number is broadcast
at regular intervals. More likely, eveyone thinks everyone else is (or will) call
it in.

They also broadcast a toll free number quite regularly. Something like, "If you have any questions or comments..." I tried it once and prompts you to leave a voicemail IIRC.

Hmmmm....If its not broadcasting that doesn't help much. Unless you memorize the number and really its not that important to me.

I rephrase my comment for those who want to nit pick "they don't know who to contact and couldn't care that much to go find out".
