• 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:

EMS Command 4 in Austin bad audio

I have ID of 1228 set for EMS Command 4 per the Database. I receive it strongly yet the audio sounds worse than and old 11M walkie talkie. Weak, scratchy, low-fi , just short of unreadable audio.
Is anyone else having trouble with the audio on this talk-group? All other EMS groups are strong and clear. (I often hear the EMS unit better than Seton or Brack does.)

Comments? Ideas?
