• 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:

    System Wide Reports - TETRA

    Is there any reason why "TETRA" is not an option for the nationwide trunked system reports? I could be doing something wrong, but I curious to see all the TETRA systems in use in the United States and there was no easy way to do it. Thanks in advance!

    Asking airports for QSL cards

    I know that some of the VOLMET channels (aviation weather) will send out a QSL but how about ATC chatter? I have been able to catch some local ATIS broadcasts from nearby airports but wasn't to sure about ATC communications.

    Just started QSLing

    Hi, I think I have figured out how to work my 996xt but I was wondering, does anyone know if police/fire/ems dispatch, rail or marine and airports will send out QSL cards?
