• 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:

Do county communication centers, sheriffs (or similar entities) in your area monitor ch 16 - or for that matter ... is there much traffic on inland waters ... ie lakes, etc. I live in Madison, WI and am curious about this. Do you hear much civilian traffic on the allocated frequencies?

Here in Tuscaloosa we have the Black Warrior River that runs through the county. I sometimes hear traffic on ch. 16. As far as public safety goes, the police department here has a lake patrol division and they use the department frequencies. We also have a water rescue division in our fire department, same story for them as well.
