yeah, and I bet the crooks are reading this forum also huh....lolPosting that sort of thing is one reason everything will eventually be encrypted....
What does being a criminal have to do with any of this? It matters not that a band of criminals or a convent of nuns is reading the forums but that people are advertising surveillance activity in public. Bad idea.yeah, and I bet the crooks are reading this forum also huh....lol
Some of you give to much credit to bad guys...I mean..if they were good, would we have 4-5 million lock up right now..obviously most of them don't plan very well, read, write or if anything else, at least learn from the last time they got busted...but they never do, thats why its a revolving door of the same old same...
but as broke as the states are, they are adding new faces to the groups everyday...watch out
understandable...that way works for you, but not others...I believe in an open socitiy...not all this hub bub of ENC....I didn't post anything specific about what I was hearing..only that I was picking them up...didn't give a Freq, only a Channel name, so you would have to go and find it if you wanted to listen to really a one sided Conversation anyway..... PS...they are going to do what they want to do as far as ENC anyway...havent you figured that out yet??At the same time there is absolutely no reason what-so-ever to post it. I've been in the hobby for over 40 years and "scan" a 200 mile radius with over 30 scanners and receivers. If its broadcast anywhere around here no doubt I hear it. I never run to the keyboard and type "guess what I just heard". There is a definite and growing national trend to encrypt police communications on all levels. If we expect to keep any sort of hobby in the future common sense should be used when making posts regarding police activity esp federal agents, whether or not they are attempting to be covert. While the mentioned post was fairly innocuous those kinds of posts lead other folks to be more brazen...I've read them before in the forums and folks have been warned many times. My only point was use your head regarding posting police activity. As a retired federal "employee" I can assure you the DEA works in thousands of places everyday hardly front page info anyway.....
Not just you, these people think just because it is federal if you mention it they will go encrypted... NOT, these frequencies are readily available online and if they wanted to go encrypted it takes a push of a button whether or not they think someones listening. Get over it, these frequencies have been plastered throughout the internet since the internet first went online, and before that on BBS's all over the world, theres no secrets here, and posting frequencies and tones isn't a crime even though some of you may think it is....... However, this frequency is as common as the NOAA Weather channels and any $10 scanner could pick it up.
I don't mean to offend here but the info in question is and always has been widely available to any and all who have an Internet connection.
But that's me . . .
I rest my case. You aren't paying attention either. :roll:How did you establish there was an operation being conducted just because someone was talking on 418.900 MHz? Just because people were talking there doesn't mean a full-blown operation was going on. People assume way too much here.
The fact is these frequencies are still splattered everywhere on the Internet and anyone can listen at any time. This frequency is no secret. Who cares that someone wrote it out here? It's written all over the Internet as to what it is, what it's used for and where to listen so what's the problem? If it was that big a deal then they should have encrypted it. But they didn't so again, who cares?
Pay better attention? Get real.
Common Sense should apply... but you go ahead and use your rights, but remember there are some on this on this forum that will call an agency and tell them or warn them about what is posted here. (And it is not me, search for the illegal Indianapolis radio thread).Whatever dude.
Tickets? There you go assuming things again. They were probably talking about the best way to approach Dunkin Doughnuts or what restaurants give the best discounts.
You can bet if I hear one of these NATIONALLY KNOWN frequencies in use I WILL talk about hearing it and even post where I heard it, regardless of how much you whine. If it's important enough they'll encrypt it, but I'm certainly not going to listen to complainers like you who disagree with the rights of other people.
