• 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:

Has anyone ever organized a metro area "get together"?

Someplace we can all gather, check out each other's radio equipment, vehicle setups, etc?

I don't know if it's been done, but I think it would be kind of cool.

What does everyone think about this?

That sounds like a great idea, I would love to meet other scanner junkies like me.

Well, North Macomb County is a bit further than I'd like to be driving, sure it's still the "tri-county" area, but a bit rural still.

That a little too far for me too.

If I were to help arrange such an event, it would have to be a little more "west side" for me.

There are a number of city owned parks in the southern end of Oakland County. Getting a shelter might be difficult at best on a weekend. Maybe something up around Southfield/Troy/Novi might work out?

This is not a bad idea at all. Maybe we can also arrange for a tour of some fire or police department as a group? I would even love to visit a 9-1-1 Center. One location we could try for is the fire museum in Ypsilanti?
