• 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:

In my humble - OK, maybe not so humble :.>> - opinion, the place for this is the various state forums. Why? Because you're more likely to find folks who have already solved a specific problem programming radios in that area. In other words, if you live in Oklahoma and want to get help programming a PRO-96, it's more likely that you'll find the help you need from a fellow Oklahoman, not to mention another thing that sometimes really gets underneath my skin - basically because so much work has been put into it...

Yes, I see those threads constantly too. It amazes me that with all the stuff we've put into the Wiki, that only a few take a look there to see if their answer can be found there. Maybe it's just me, since I've put a great deal of time and energy into building the Wiki - so perhaps my viewpoint is not objective - but I think folks either don't know it's there, or aren't aware that they can view it without any additional registration or restriction (the only thing that is somewhat restricted is editing it - and you can register for free to enable that...).

It's a resource that, to be honest, I wish more folks would use. 73s Mike

I didn't really go to the wiki until I heard someone tell someone else to go to the wiki and read what ever he was looking for. I am new to scanners and have enjoyed the wiki and will go back to make sure I didn't miss anything. Thank you to everyone who made the effort of adding good things to learn.
