• 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:

There's lightning everywhere but here today. It's been a good day to listen to the fire scanner. The local national forest has a Lightning Coordinator. That sounds like an interesting job.

There are cover engines from all over in our area right now, since our firefighters are off fighting other fires. Earlier I heard 2 Arizona engines dispatched, and just now, one from Oregon and one from New Mexico.

We had a ton of lightning in SoCal this weekend. Many lightning starts all over. I could see 2 from the hpwren cameras burning in Riverside. There is another large fire in San Diego... don't know if it was lightning or not.
