• 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:

Franklin County Broadcast Feed Silent

Mar 27, 2014
Youngsville, NC
Not sure what is going on in Franklin County but does anyone know of any changes they have made that would cause the broadcast feed to go silent? If I raise the volume it sounds like an open line noise or something but nothing is broadcasting. It has been silent since Monday.

I know in the past Franklin County has taken towers offline to work on them and that has caused the broadcast feed to go silent but it has never been for this long before.

Prior to Monday the transmissions were grabled and sounded like the deputies and dispatchers were under water. This happened before and they took towers offline, did repairs and everything was good again. Then it rained and the transmissions went back to garbled again. Now the broadcast has been silent since Monday.
