• 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:

20 gal gas and generator is ready. All my outdoor items are inside (wish my %)^(&(^( neighbors would do the same. Have plenty of elderly neighbors, guess they are going to my problem if sh** hits the fan.

Yep, getting ready for it too here near Richmond, although it won't be as bad as on the coast. It looks like it might be worse than Isabel but at least the ground isn't as saturated now as it was that year.

DIRECTV is launching a dedicated 24/7 "Hurricane Irene Information" channel that will provide live broadcasts from local stations in markets affected by the hurricane to DIRECTV viewers nationwide.

The DIRECTV-produced information channel will begin broadcasting at midnight EDT/9 p.m. PDT tonight and will air on three separate viewer channels: 259, 325 and 349. DIRECTV plans to provide continuous coverage throughout the weekend or until the storm has diminished in strength.

At this time it's showing NBC 12 from Richmond, VA on those above channels.

I have been in the NASA Wallops EOC since 0600 yesterday morning. Had to come in to support all RF coms, in case something went down. I'm still here :(

I guess she fooled you, and everybody else too. I have family living off Luck's Lane and they somehow didn't lose power. Gonna be a long cleanup!

She certainly did. I was at the state EOC for over 12 hours in the radio room (N4VEM, perhaps I spoke to some of you?) Saturday and handled lots of messages.

I too was very lucky to keep power, well we only lost it for about 2 hours but it's been very reliable.
