Re: crypto comm
I feel the same had many good years of listening.
You know, I could listen to anything in those days, and I just listened for enjoyment and my interest in communications. Didn't divulge anything, did not cause anyone any trouble. Kept it to myself.
Would never in a million years stream it to the public. That is just shooting oneself in the foot.
Most of what I heard was in the public domain anyway, (court records etc)
If I was listening in public I used headphones and it looked like I was listening to music. Would try to keep the scanner out of site.
Then when MDT's came into use there was much less private information given out. Next, in car computers, cellphones, so even less on the radio.
Anyway, I am grateful for those years, not complaining.

Rather than think I know better than what these agencies need, I thank my lucky stars that I could listen to some great communications in the 80's just by programming a Bearcat or a Radio Shack Pro-200X.
I believe I lived through a unique time when crystals weren't needed and Tom Kneitel published frequencies that are today encrypted 99+% of the time.
It was fun. I was fortunate. I'm thankful and I've moved on to other hobbies.
