It’s not about listening, it’s about tranmitting on these channels. Ham radios have dropped in price to the same levels as scanners so kids today are buying 2-way radios instead of scanners.October 18, 2013 2:25 pm at 2:25 pm #1073217
Listening in on emergency frequencies is voyeurism at its worst. It is a horrible middah and should be eradicated at as young an age as possible.October 18, 2013 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #1073218Little FroggieParticipant
What’s so horrible about that? Maybe some people get a thrill out of it. I’m totally not into these things, but I think there’s a hobby related to scanners – police, fire etc. Some people obviously get a kick out of it.October 18, 2013 3:27 pm at 3:27 pm #1073219heretohelpMember
Listening in on other people in their worst moments of fear and danger for a thrill? Yeah, what’s wrong with that?

You see nothing wrong with getting a kick out of someone elses misfortune?October 18, 2013 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #1073221YentaParticipant
Don’t know about you guys, but I am glued to this website
What’s wrong with following the crime and mayhem in NYC?October 18, 2013 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #1073222

Getzel – I don’t know about Twitter, but listening to Scanners Is not the same thing as transmitting on two-way radios.October 20, 2013 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm #1073225YentaParticipant
What is the BIG DEAL!?!?!?!
Are we not allowed to know the news in our neighborhoods?!?!?!?!?
See it for yourself. is there anything not nice here?October 20, 2013 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #1073226sharpMember
I think it’s a bad habit. I don’t see the thrill in listening to emergency calls or scanners. These tragedies happen to real people and it’s more sad than fun.October 20, 2013 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #1073227
Listening to 911 and Hatzolah I would say is different to start. + I think it’s immature to listen to 911 as well.October 20, 2013 9:02 pm at 9:02 pm #1073228
If calls to hatzalah are what you consider breaking neighborhood news, you need to get a life. Quick.October 20, 2013 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #1073229showjoeParticipant

While the rules don’t allow for links, whoever setup the forum software never bothered to set the option to prohibit links.April 21, 2015 3:05 am at 3:05 am #1073231
I have seen twitter accounts close but lately new ones popping up with reporting every Hatzolah call, where is the sensitivity?April 21, 2015 4:55 am at 4:55 am #1073232JosephParticipant

hey! i thought “no links allowed”April 21, 2015 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1073235👑RebYidd23Participant
While the forum software does not block links, aren’t the mods supposed to? And that link is not appropriate.April 21, 2015 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1073236
