• 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:

Others more in the know probably figured this out already, but it was news to me... You can now download most of the FAA charts...

Obviously they provide the most basic freq info... But they are very helpful when you try and figure out who's going where. The paper ones are still good to have though. I bought two new paper copies of the WAC charts for my area and spliced them together to make one large wall chart. Very helpful for seeing all the restricted areas and control points.

Other good charts are the sectionals, helicopter route, and the VHF US wall planning map is also nice. They stopped making available the older DOD ONC type charts... but honestly, the WAC charts are better anyway.

Sure is nice to see these finally being made public. There is *alot* of cool stuff that you can do with the GeoTIFF rasters.
