• 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 system you're refering to.
At my station, I've heard the Saginaw County Trunked system numerous times.
Every day I can hear the GCRTA In Cleveland on 900 MHz. ( better be able to because of my full-time job).
On VHF, UHF, and low-band, don't evem ask. The statistics are too numerous to recall.

In the winter months, its not uncommon to receive the California Highway Patrol, here in Michigan on VHF-Low band. However, the furthest that I have received must have been somewhere in China on 37.36 MHz, back 30 years ago. Several users were on that channel talking in Cantonese, which is a southern dialect in China. I had no idea what they were saying, but they were making it very hard for our local Sheriff's Dept. to talk with any of their units.
