• 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:

The rule is that on the SCTac and ITac, you are supposed to use plain language. In actuality, the 10 codes were to make radio transmissions shorter. The corruption of the use is "what is your 10-20?" Its just as short to say, "what is your location?" Having been in the rescue squad for nearly 20 years, I have a bad habit of saying 10-4 when on 2 meters or 440mhz repeaters. Everybody says I have been on the CB too long! Whatever! As you say, old habits die hard.
