• 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:

What City/Township/County/State Agencies Are Not Using ARMER?

Apr 29, 2006
As posted above, what city, township, county or state agencies are not using ARMER in your area? I think this topic has come up in the past, but it is often times interesting to learn about how things change over time. (Much like the recent discussion about Edina Fire VHF.)

ARMER is a great system, but not every entity is on it. If I recall correctly, there are some public works organizations that are not using it. In fact, given the weather the past couple of days, this might be a great time to listen and see who is using what in your area. Are there any highway departments that are on a conventional resources that are patched with an ARMER talkgroup?
