• 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 looks like the 'Eurocopter" will be built on American soil by American employees, It's costing taxpayer's less than Bell's design would; It's replacing the aging (but still well) designed Huey, and allowing Blackhawks currently in use stateside to go to our troops overseas. Qui s'inquiète ?

Your attitude towards the fact the company is French owned and the fact you are a gun owner & a Veteran (thank you for your service, BTW) seems to imply to me atleast, you'd be supportive of The War, the GOP, and President Bush; yet you bash him? Also, If I recall correctly, you didn't have an issue with the fact Bush's new helio being of European origin.

No problem if you see me as not being consistent in opinions but remember, I don't run the country either !!
Vet or not, my only and I repeat only reason to post that, was to show how much money & industry is being outsourced to other countries by our own gov't. Nothing more & nothing less.

Ah, Protectionism.

It always SOUNDS like such a good idea.

Someone need to read Adam Smith.

The EC-145 is a great bird. I have no issues with EADS building them here or there.

Remember its all economics. Which in turn leads to built by the lowest bidder! EADS is a worldwide company, just like Boeing and Bell and everyone else these days.
