• 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:

Hello,

There is a railcar leaking hazardous material at Reichold Chemical Co. in Cheswold. Most of Kent Co Fireboard is on the scene. DNREC, K-SERT, K-TAC4 and KNTMA1 are very active. Some roads are closed and vapor clouds are passing thru Dover. Good listening!

Guess I need to program all counties into my new Pro-2096 and take a listen at something other than my corner of the state once in a while. I missed all of it. After hearing it on the news this morning I did take a listen, but most of the activity/excitement was over.

There's enough down here in Sussex to keep my ears occupied--sometimes too much going on.

Hello,

K-SERT is still active. I use 6 scanners at the QTH, each one dedicated to a system(s) from 4 States (DE, MD, PA, NJ). I usually monitor NCCo and Kent Co. using a Yagi. I do miss Dover PD which went with fulltime encryption.

Kent Co. Fireboard has encryption capability and uses it. It is hoped the Fireboard does not go the way of PHL Fire, which uses fulltime encryption on Fireground.

And yes, Sussex Co can be busy at times. NCCo seems to be the busiest, lots going on.

Just got the digital capability. My external antenna is still on the analog scanner. I'm less than a mile from one of the Sussex towers, so the supplied antenna does very well here. Sorry to hear the systems are going encrypted. Kind of defeats owning a scanner.
