• 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:

I did it--finally went digital! Got the Pro-2096 and Win96 software. RR was a great resource. Rat Shack programmed it for me (that was a big help to get started), but I think I've finally got it set up my way.

I'm less than a mile from one of the towers, so the signals are great. Having a blast.

Assuming that not may have a P25 capable reciver..
Or assuming that digital means encrypted.
