• 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:

who uses 692 to 698?

I know many people aren't interested in data, and I'm pretty sure there's no receivable audio here, but the fcc recently froze all channel 51 applications. I use a screenreader, so if this is offtopic, I'm sorry. I couldn't find any forum relating to broadcast media. Acording to the article I read, the wireless telecommunications industry asked the fcc to freeze them because they were worried about interference. I've never heard of or read about anything in that band. I know hospital telemetry uses 608 to 614, but that's the closest thing I know of except for 700 mhz public safety systems. Might some of these systems have input frequencies in the 690's? I haven't read the 700mhz frequencies.
