• 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:

Never had a problem buried like that on my Florida property for 22 yrs. Also here in Ohio, going on 3 1/2 yrs no underground problems. The coax chewing rodents around here are squirrels who favor aerial lines.

We all do whatever works for us. If I have a recipe that is a success, I am hard pressed to change it based on someone else's advice. But, I will file it away in my mental file cabinet for future reference, if needed :)

Everyone's experience is different. I've had trouble with rodents eating cables before. That's why I suggested the conduit and a way to pull extra cables in.

Like you suggested....We all do what works for us!
