    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:

Good evening everyone, has anybody noticed for the past few days the Hudson county sheriff has been on utac 5? I wonder if they’re preparing to migrate to the new county 700mhz system.

Yes, I've noticed it too. They seem to have been on it for over a week already.

Yes, I was thinking maybe they’re in the process of migrating to the new county system.

Are they repeating on that channel? If they are going 700 and are currently uhf 450mhz area why use utac when they could patch existing or use old until new is rolled out?
