• 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:

I don't know if this is feasible, but I sure would like to be able to search the database for a specific Frequency AND PL combo.

I search out a lot of distant stations and can detect the PL. Being able to search and identify the potential matches would be helpful. I realize in many many cases, PL data is not available in the database, but where it IS available, this would be nice.

Just an idea.

Just a thought. It should be an option, like the Advanced Search on the forums. So you could use freq, tone, or both. And the tone could be a drop down box since even some of the database administrators have had some issues with tone format. I do think a simple description of appropriate format would be better though, for just typing tones in quickly if you have a list.
