There is the Community Forum, the first forum listed, but breaking news usually goes in the state specific forum. I don't think a post will go into two forums automatically and you take a chance of getting a "brown helmet" if you post the same message into two forums. You could post in the Community Forum, a moderator would just tell you the subject belongs in the specific state Forum area . There is a section, in your ho,me state that is for breaking news. The cell phone deal sounds like it would be the easiest, I have got Amber Alerts a couple of times, that are regional in nature., You could get traffic when you are away from the scanner as well as near the scanner, or near the computer. Broadcastify, when you sign in, the give alerts there plus when you look at the number of listeners on a site, a good hint that something BIG is going on.
