• 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:

If you are in the Rhinelander/Iron Mountain region give this frequency a listen. I listened friday, saturday & sunday and I wasn't able to ID the federal user.

Assigned to three agencies by IRAC as a common use / shared frequency for Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service Administration and the Bureau of Reclaimation... ALL in the western states, NOT the midwest. Very curious to say the least.

Did you hear a repeater or was it simplex?

It was a repeater. I could hear a dispatcher and mobiles mention locations throughout northern wisconsin and the western U.P.

Just back from the northwoods. It appears the frequency is used by the Department of Veterans Affairs for security at the VA Hospital in Iron Mountain and VA Clinics in northern Wisconsin and Michigan's U.P.
