• 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:

Gallipolis Fireworks 7/4/06

Hello all, in SE Ohio, the Gallipolis fireworks display will be at 10:00PM on the 4th. At the Upstream Public Use Area (Ohio River launch ramp)...

The PD operates on 453.850. The county EMS runs on 155.295. County sheriff is 155.565. They usually have a large crowd. It's in the city, so, most traffic will be on the PD freq.

The MOST excitement is when roughly 10,000 people ALL try to leave at once and the MAIN highway is a two lane job that doesn't handle it well. The scanner gets kinda lively then....
