    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:

Is there a way, while doing conventional scanning, to have the radio use the pre-programmed DCS or CTCSS tone on channels where they exist and have been programmed, and to SEARCH for tones on channels where none have been specified?

Seems to me the search option puts the entire radio into a tone search mode, even the channels where a tone has been specified... bummer.
