• 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:

Yes. For scanner purposes, you only put the receive, or output, frequency in. If your scanner decodes the tone (PL, DPL), then you put that in too. The input, or mobile frequency, is useful for either programming a two-way radio, or in the case of Texas DPS, the only way to hear the troopers talking to dispatch on Primary A and B is to enter the input, or mobile frequency into the scanner.
