• 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:

Joe, you don't know me but, before I found Radio Reference I used your website http://www.joescanner.com

It was a great help then and occassional I hop over to it to see if there's updates. The NW Frequency Directory (listed on joescanner.com) is an excellent reference.

Also, I want to say "thanks Joe" for keeping the sight up. I feel it's the best "local" scanner website out here.

Regards

Jim (Hillsboro)

Thanks

As I posted elsewhere, the fate of joescanner.com is in the balance right now as I decide how to allocate my budget. With the work that Lindsay has done and continues to do with RR, my skills and ideas have been surpassed (my original idea for JoeScanner was to do exactly as Lindsay has done with RR -- way back when this was just the "Trunked Radio Infromation Page" at lcblanton.com!).

I'll be making my final decision at the end of the month -- the server bandwidth renews in the middle of June.

Hey Joe,

I sent you an email praising your site after I found it a few years back. It is the best Portland metro scanning site around due to your knowledge and accuracy. I still look to it first then RR. Whatever you decide, hopefully you'll continue to use your talents here.
