• 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:

    What is this signal?

    Ok, so I was tuning around looking for analogue voice signals, and I tuned across this. I've heard it before, but never knew what it was. After looking at sigidwiki, I concluded that it's possibly something to do with railroads. It almost sounds like MDC-1200, but being used as a pager or...

    YRCS talkgroups of interest.

    TG 1013: I'm only hearing one side of this, and it may be a patch from another channel. 1100: In the past, I've heard both what sounded like worker's compensation fraud surveillance, as well as a contract road crew talking to the ADOT Phoenix TOC. 1108: Was used car-to-car, with very lax radio...

    Unknown signal on 19 meters

    Hello, I'm new to this forum but thought it was a good place to get some feedback on a strange shortwave signal I came across today on 15480kHz. Maybe 'over the horizon radar'? The bandwidth of this signal was pretty wide at 10kHz so it sounded about the same up on 15485kHz. I was tuning in via...

    Unknown antennas popping up on traffic lights. RFID?

    Here in Springfield Missouri, these antennas are popping up on various traffic lights at some of the busier intersections around town. This looks like RFID, which would be bad from a privacy standpoint. It could also be for emergency vehicle detection to change the lights for them, but if so...

    Unknown Little Rock Talk Group

    While listening over the past few months I have been picking up an unknown talk group ID (528). I know its the police because of what is being said but just can not figure out what the talk group is for. Anyone have an idea?
