    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:

Hey Guys,
Anyone else hearing an open carrier on Barrie FD-1 142.215 full strength! or is it just me?
Thanks

Just unlocked that side of the lake. It is definately open static as of 6:50p.m. Sounds more like a stuck repeater than an open carrier though. I'll listen for a while and see if comms are being done on T2.

Good news is it isn't your radio:)

Update: It seems whatever is causing this noise is not hampering regular operations. The "static" stops shortly before a transmission begins and starts back again soon after. I almost wonder if this is some sort of digital data carrier that has been added to the system?

Hey all,

In the event that nobody has had the opportunity to be listening today, I hear that Barrie fire tac1 has returned to normal but there has been a bunch of testing going on with Barrie police on tac2...Judging from the sound if it, they're testing out GPS and in the process of working out the bugs. Have no idea if this activity is related to what was going on with fire or not but it's made for some interesting listening.
