• 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:

Nice pics, you must really like those Relm MS200's!

Have a Coke and a smile..........and a counseling form!
My employer gets very hostile if they see open beverage containers anywhere near the consoles or keyboards! In the new "super dupper multi-million $$ Control Room" they issued all of us stainless thermos mugs with snap on 'sippy cup lids',(the ONLY liquid containers permitted in the Control Room) and even they aren't allowed near the consoles, they have to stay on our rolling accessory tables. (also only non-greasy approved-by-the-boss snack/finger foods permitted, all else requires a relief worker and a trip to the kitchen armed with a portable radio to keep tabs on happenings....)

Yeah, Cant get enough of the MS200 Scanner, Computer programmable, PL/DPL, Alpha display, has everything I need. Although the county is in the process of instaling a UHF type 2 trunking system so I'm gonna have to get a trunking scanner soon.

As for my console at work, There are 3 identical consoles in the control room. The beverage/refreshments have never really been an issue, We only have 2 people working in the room at a time so leaving to enjoy a snack is usally out of the question. There is plexi-glas on the desk-top and there is a gap between where the dest-top meets the rack, so if anything is spilled it usally ends up all over the floor. I can't enjoy a trip to the kitchen due to the fact that its in corrections behind 4 locked doors!
