    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:

Here in Ohio I am hearing from a local police chief that the 800 trunking band being used has been sold to Nextel, all but the Xenia area. I live in Clinton County and am wondering what will be next and if it will be possible to monitor it, I've heard it will not be. Any advice!?!?!??

sounds like you should move to Xenia. The police chief does not know what he is talking about. Some users of 800 MHz frequencies are going to be moved within 800 MHz and Nextel will pay the cost of the move. But no agency has to leave 800 MHz. You can search on here for rebanding and read all about it.
