• 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:

Can we add the active frequencies for weatheradio for our respectful counties to the database? As well, as the CLC codes for the S.A.M.E. weather alerting feature that is currently being implemented across Canada?

Or would we just simply add this link http://www.msc.ec.gc.ca/msb/weatheradio/index_e.cfm

To the Canadian start page http://radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR

I do believe that this type of information should be included in this vast database that RadioReference.com has become.

Do you as a citizen and hobbiest not see this as a good thing?

I can tell you that the S.A.M.E. system seems to be working although not fully complete yet. With the past storms that had hit Ontario in the last 2 weeks I know my BC246T alerted me to potential storms that occured throughout Eastern Ontario.

As well, this link http://groups.yahoo.com/group/weatheradio/ could also be a link on the link provided above also this is a great group for anyone interested in following the weatheradio network and implementation of S.A.M.E. alerting in Canada.

A weather radio wiki seems appropriate. I don't think duplicating all of the weather radio info from NOAA (and its Canadian equivalent) is needed when we can just link to it.

Yes, common frequencies and links to SAME codes belong in the Wiki.

If you want to post location specific Wiki codes, then create a Wiki page for your area and put the frequencies and SAME codes in there.
