• 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:

The same thing happened a couple of years ago. Rich forgot to renew his domian. I'll try to contact him. He would not go without saying anything to his members.

When i got into scanning.... Many years ago.... Rich Wells, Bill Cheek, and Bob Parsons were (and still are) considered the heavy hitters in the scanning hobby. Strongsignals is well known for being the source for reviews, mods, latest info, and great forums. I hope Rich is ok... Keep us posted. :)

Do not forget Lindsay Blanton. Do your research and you will find that Lindsay has been around for a while too!

(As stated before, Oh no... this thread again?)

Did I tell you that Sonoran Bullfrogs have wings? :)

I guess their "signals" weren't as "strong" as they thought it was.

Or maybe someone got their "signals" mixed up and they thought the expiration date for the domain name ended next month.

Sorry, just having fun with the puns on the domain name...lol. Hopefully it will be back soon. It would be better, othewise we are stuck with "spurious signals." :lol:
