• 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:

Another pending petition is from the Association of American
Railroads requesting consolidation of its VHF & UHF licenses
and was filed 09/09/2005 (FCC File #0002282007).

Link to AAR's Petition: http://tinyurl.com/pu4z8

The Petition asks the FCC to grant railroads geographical licenses
instead of site-specific licenses to facilitate the efficient
conversion to narrowband operations by streamlining licensing for
railroad entities.

The exclusive geographic area would be defined as a 95-mile zone
along either side of the rights-of-way of all operating rail lines
in the United States, essentially the entire lower 48 states. The
AAR spectrum plan would arrange 181 VHF channels into 80 trunked
duplex channel pairs, 5-non-trunked channel pairs and 11 simplex
channels as part of the geographic license. AAR would keep track
of individual railroad radio station operations through a database
that would be accessible to the Commission and all frequency
coordinators via the Internet.

If only public safety could get their act together like this.
