    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 have used satellite cable coax ( good for the higher bands), which is reasonably priced nowadays as a substitute. They should have that in stock.

I have used the satellite cable too although it is 75 ohms it still performs quite satisfactory for shortish runs (75 ft or less) and RX only.
