• 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:

Tried RR FCC database, then looked for mobiles on ULS website, but it is down for maintenance till tomorrow morning. There aren't any repeaters further west than La Grange except a Fort Stockton area forest service repeater. And you said it was in Hye, so that rules out skip. I guess my post is just useless, but too late, I hit the post button!

Isn't that the Forest Service frequency? I suppose a ranger could make a traffic stop...but I am just guessing here.

Forest Rangers evidently can make traffic stops if the vehicle is traveling in the forest area , me and a hunting buddy were stopped last year in East Texas by one.

it sounds like a TP&W Game warden pulling traffic, could be a park ranger too. Might have even been DPS or TEXAS TASK FORCE. since the DPS radio system is all messed up due to Digital being implimented through out the state. Who knows with this state anymore?!!

I was sitting in the parking lot at LBJ National Historic Park, Gillispie County, when I heard that. The signal was so strong that I caught it with the Close Call feature on the BC396. That only happens when I am very near the transmitter.
