• 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:

It's bombing in again just like last night... except I am hearing much more traffic/activity. So far I am getting hits all over 42 MHz up here in CT from Missouri DPS.

I've been picking up everything from Detroit area to Niagara Falls area to Southern Ontario from my home in Ashtabula. All this on my PRO-96 with stock antenna.

Mostly hi-band, UHF, & 800
