    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:

Sadly the company that makes the bubble for MSP (UNITY MFG.) decided to no longer make the Spitfire Dome with the 2 clear lines in it due to cost because only a few departments use that dome. They told MSP that if they wish to continue to order the Beacon that they will have to use a solid color dome. THIS BITES REAR END.

Thus new Pics





Also the current order of cars is 1 bubble car to every 5 slick tops. Seems that MSP is going to go with more slick top cars.

I don't know about anyone else but I like just the blue light on police cars. Here in Holland they have only blue leds. Even on grille on the car. Red reminds me of Fire/EMS.

I just can't get over how huge that light is :)

I take it LE can run red and/or blue across the pond, eh? That city car looks like it belongs in the deep south.

I have a question about that last pic, the one of the MSP car with the Spitfire dome. What kind of radar is that? It looks like a Ka band radar unit. What caught my eye was the black antenna lens, which is unusual. Is that perhaps an MPH BEE III? The reason I ask is that I don't see many around these parts.
