• 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 have heard it. Its so annoying and happens so much I lock the channel out. I'm not sure what is causing it, but when the distance signal is bringing the repeater up, its not voice.

I've been noticing it a lot also. I've almost got to the point of locking out the CR dispatch freq from my feed. I haven't heard it in a few days though, but I've not been near the scanner as much as before.
