• 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:

For the conventional freqs, Itacs are usualy short range so you might not hear a whole lot on them. Metro air might be an aircraft that is to far away for you to hear... thus the static. Are you using an outdoor antenna at all?

Never heard of Metro Air, but I-Tacs do have repeaters. I have heard I-Tacs from downtown to Aurora, South Metro Fire etc.
