• 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:

Say goodbye to 900 / 35cm guys. Two very large cities here in Minnesota are putting high powered city wide traffic signal communication transmitters throughout the ham band. Watch for fiberglass 5/8's wave antenna's going up at an intersection near you.


Yours truly,
Mr MRB

ummm... who's the primary in 900? I don't think amateur is the primary user, more likely it's a secondary user, with unlicensed low power being primary.. just a thought... I don't use 900..
