Aiken Electric is on the PSA 900 MHz system. Not knowing which tower you are closest to, I'll give the link to the Public Service Authority, 900 MHz.

South Carolina Public Service Authority Trunking System, Various, South Carolina - Scanner Frequencies

Once you have your 900 bank set up with the correct control frequencies, I'd set it to ID search if you have a Uniden or the wildcard search on a Radio Shack or GRE.

Good Luck

PM me if you need any help.

Unhappy

The Fed mandated that all major power co's move to some form of digital comms that cannot be received with conventional radios or scanners. All upstate utilities have done so except Laurens Elect which is still digital on the PAL800. You may never hear them again.

Larry, as of today anyway, I can receive both SCE&G and Aiken Electric as well as Santee Cooper on my Uniden 996T. I have picked up some encrypted TGs on the Trenton 900 tower recently and that may be the "hole in the dike" of something coming. Don't you just love our government?!

There was a story that hit national news several years ago about protesters climbing the very tall stacks south of Asheville and hunging large signs. The power plant claimed to be very surprised that their radio comms were being monitored by the intruders. Homeland Security jumped on this and mandated changes. It could be they think PAL 800 digial is safe. Duke, Blue Ridge, and others are gone forever.

Do you have a link for this new digital mandate...?

And the MOTOTRBO users can still be heard. I've used DSD have no problem scanning across EnergyUnited, BREMCo, & REMC with my TRBO portables.
