• 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:

I think more people will migrate to digital as time goes on. Eventually is very broad. It may not be in our lifetime when everyone is using digital transmissions.

TV one way not two way. Many TV stations are switched over to digital. You need an HDTV to receive the signal though.

Cell phones are already digital. There are not too many places left that are still analog.

The trend is moving towards all digital. One of the biggest things going for digital is that is allows for more efficient use of precious spectrum space.
