• 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:

Depends on what kind of box it is.

If it's dish or directv, that's all they are good for - dish and directv reception. But if it's the older full size dish type receiver you can have all sorts of fun with that, pull down your favorite shows from the network bird and watch them commercial free and before everyone else, eavesdrop on newscrews as they do their live shots, follow breaking news as the news helo's beam it in to the stations, etc.

How do you zero in on those kinds of data? You have to have trajectory right and beam it at a specific point in the sky right?
