• 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:

Fire up those scanners! It'll be a great weekend to stay home and use the search feature of your scanners to locate snowplow talkgroups and frequencies for your county engineer, city services and local snow plow companies!

Don't forget... Milk and bread, milk and bread!

(Why? I have no idea but there is always a run on those two things when there is news heavy snow. :ROFLMAO: )

I'm ready. Grocery shopping done last night. Did the grocery list from memory? I have enough bread for 2+ weeks as a result.

Time for some good old fashioned scanning...

AEP - what IS the current status? Still the old EDACS system, new one? I do not routinely listen, but there is a good chance of ice ice baby.

Absolutely, still the old EDACS system. I believe we are stil only aware of two P25 sites online, and I'm not sure anyone has even reported much testing on them. Here in East Ohio everything within range of me from three locations is still EDACS on the AEP system.

That's what I thought, just seems to be zero traffic, but then I do not watch it 100%. Just put another Proscan PC - might let one sit on it someday.

Forgot the most important item...toilet paper. You'll need it after taking down the milk and bread.
