• 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:

There is a good VHF high band opening from my location in central Alabama north to Tennessee. I am hearing comms on 161.950 / Nac 2A0 that are related to a vehicle accident. Reference made to "No T DOT truck on scene". Any ideas who this is?

Also hearing comms on 169.625 / Nac 200 in Eastern Time Zone which I am guessing is TVA.

Can't say for sure what you're hearing but Oak Ridge National Laboratory was using a 200 NAC. I used to be able to pick them up from here but not anymore. Maybe they changed frequencies? Not sure.

169.6250 $200 has been heard in the TN/GA/NC area, and talk was about "Hiwasee River"
could be ACoE or TVA or even NPS or USFWS

TVA in TN was reported using $418 in 2015

This is part of the TACN system that has a mix of 700MB and 150MB trunking sites that is the system NAC. There are 2 VHF TACN sites in West Tn and several in Southen Middle Tn in the District 7 area. Site 1 054 just north of Florence Al looks like a 1 possible site.

Also on Short Mountain (Cannon Co), a reasonable spot for you to have picked up if the propagation was right. A lot of the Murfreesboro area comms are on that site and TDOT does come down to and include parts of 840 at I-24
