You cant blame us for reacting the way we did. Anyway have fun Cheers :thumbsup:
I agree with most of what was said, but seriously try network radio great fun, right now im listening to Garret Fire Service (USA) you would think people who live in mainly wooden houses would be more careful small area about 30,000 people, house fires per day that need more than 1 fire engine, 6 or 7

Its the future of scanning

What he's doing is creating a private group based on the PoC system which is PTT over the internet, but you cannot as a random person log on on-line. They are user groups - have a look at Zello to see how it works. The group 'owner' gets a request from you and if they like you, they allow you access, so you can listen to activity from anywhere the original feed point is in the world. They go through a sort of switching hub, so you can receive thousands of channels with no permission needed just by clicking. Glasgow Rangers is a great one to search through if you like serious abuse, threats, sex and violence! Other groups require the moderator to approve you, and until they do - you cannot hear anything. When my son's work radio system broke - they set up a zello system. everyone put it on their phone, and you use it like a walkie talkie - you put out a call and it comes from everybody's phone. They then set up sub groups so the cleaners had one group, the tech guys another and the managers another - they find it actually more flexible - the pain is the phones get used for other things, so they are now buying walkie-talk style radios that use zello. Works great.

The key feature here is permissions. It's rare for presecutions to happen, but the Wireless telegraphy Act still has the wording to the effect that you cannot listen to things you don't have a licence for - so rebroadcasting mountain rescue (an emergency service in status) could be decided by OFCOM to be worthy of an investigation - you cannot link Gatwick or Heathrow airport aircraft comms without hassle from the authority - that's why the people that do, keep it very, very quiet - a friends only, definitely NOT a forum subject.

Intresting viewpoint Paul if you want more info Digger PM me

So Paul are you saying that asking and publishing freq on here is ok but you think a network channel using those freq would be investigated because thats much worse than listening to them on a scanner after obtaining the freq from this forum?

I personally think ofcom etc. dont have the time or inclanation unless you being stupid with what you hear, and i think a blind eye is the order of the day or these forums would not be here.
