• 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 see the warning not to use the Feed Alerts on the admin page for weather alerts, what I'm wondering about is programming the scanner to do WX Alerts for our county here that would go out on the feed like the fire and EMS traffic. Does anyone provide that in their feed? It seems like it would be of service to those listening to the feeds.

Thanks.

Many dispatch centers notify their units, when a weather watch or warning is issued.

If someone really wants to follow weather alerts for an area, they can check the NWS website, or monitor the weather radio feeds.

It is not permitted. As a feed provider you should know this.

"Feed providers agree to not broadcast NOAA Weather Radio"

From the Feed Provider Terms of Service.
