    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 am currently putting together files for my Pro-96 and Pro-97 for a trip next weekend
to Hunt Valley. We're coming in via I-68>I-70>I-695>I-83.

What are opinions on alpha tags for the Maryland State Police?
Holding to the allowable 12 character spaces for the Pro-96 here are
a few of the ways I am looking at tagging them:

Example: 39.0800 Barrack W McHenry (Garrett County)

1. Barrack W
2. MSP W
3. W - McHenry

All suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Mark

I have MSP BARRCK W in my Pro 96. Unfortunately unless you have a really good antenna you won't pick up much MSP comms since they are all simplex.....Enjoy your stay in Maryland....

Thanks Mo. I found the MD Emergency.p96 file that you posted
last year here. So I brought it up and followed your lead with the tagging.

Looking forward to great weekend in MD!
