• 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:
    https://forums.radioreference.com/rants/224104-official-thread-live-audio-feeds-scanners-wait-encryption.html

Ever read any other forums (not about radios) that a scanner question is asked?

I read another forum that is completely different from this, and I've never seen a discussion about radios and/or scanners.

Until today. It's pretty cool to watch 20-30 people reply with speculations ("listening to police is illegal!") or incorrect facts ("It's impossible to listen to digital systems!) and then reply and correct everyone and look like an expert.

Now, on this website, I'm a fairly new memeber and FAR FAR FAR FAR from an expert. But, to a group of people who know nothing about the subject, it sure feels nice for once!

Ever turned into the expert on the subject while still not knowing very much?

Yeah I was over on the large hooters forum the other day and some gay guy who was trying to troll the board asked about scanners. What a boob.

Go to www.totse.com

There is a whole forum there for radio communications. Most of it is all useless/incorrect information. But still fun to read.

There are 2 threads on sigforum today about scanners. I just posted to one of the threads reccomending that they visit this forum for answers to their questions.
I have seen several threads on Sigforum about scannners in the last year or so.
