    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 was a story in Saturday's Gaston Gazette about a new 375 foot tower that was completed at the South Point/Belmont Fire Station at 2300 South Point Road. A $600.000 homeland security grant paid for it.

Gaston and Mecklenburg counties as well as South Point VFD have formed a partnership to promote radio interoperability between all emergency first responder organizations in the region.

The new tower could save gaston County $12,000 a year in rental space. Private cellular service will also be permitted to lease space on the tower.

End story...

I like how homeland security grants paid for it, and they are also renting out space for cell companies :roll: I bet they can put nextel on it as well as an 800 repeater, then they'll wonder why it does not sound too good :lol:
