    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:

My scanner keeps landing on this freq, Ive looked in the DB but havent found anything around OKC

Its very faint and I know that theres voice in there, only words Ive picked up were
"Your Digger is not in the right place, you need to move it"

Im really confused, is it possible to be picking up skip for a few days in a row?

You might be picking up the wireless comm system for a local fast food restaurant. Try 154.6 and see if it's the other side of the conversation. Do you have a McDonalds close to you?

I doubt oil exploration companies would use something like that. Road boring equipment operators or surveyors are my guess. Looking at the nation-wide licenses for that area of frequencies returns surveying/security system type of services (other than testing freq ranges for manufacturers and such).
