• 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:

I just wanted to say that it sure sounded good to hear Room Full of Blues blasting out of my radio on 9.870KHz this morning. I love that RNZ relay of their late evening domestic network newscast.

I remember the first time I heard RNZ on my old Hallicrafters with an indoor antenna. I liked their programming and I was amazed at the unique type of transmitter they use, which I understand recently was replaced with a more energy efficient model. Nonetheless, they had a program Saturday nights our time, that featured a lot of Blues and Jazz Music. I haven't heard it lately, but its much easier to hear them in the wintertime.

My other favorite source from that part of the world is the Australian Broadcasting Company from Melbourne. They have always had a much stronger signal here in Great Lakes Region from their two transmitter sites that beam towards the north. They often have some rather interesting programs as well.
