• 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:

4372 is very weak into my location in the Mojave Desert.

Yep, Navy ships will do better out at sea with room to move and just ride out the storm. Rode out a big Typhoon in 1979 north of the PI. On an FFG we blasted through a Typhoon in 1984 that split the superstructure from weather deck to weather deck, had water on the deck on the O-2 level interior spaces. 5 months in the yards after that one to repair the house from bimetallic strip to bimetallic strip.

Heard some faint SSB activity on 4372, also 8967around 27 AUG 0210Z but local QRN was bad. Token deserves credit for being on that ship. Some of those Frigates were built in less than 6 months and played a major role in containing the Soviet sub-based ICBM threat. BRAVO ZULU OM!

Very good, been sitting on freq for the last few days monitoring the traffic. Early Sunday morning several ops were playing games and firmly admonished by net control. Nice sounding babe. Excellent signal into Pittsburgh, S4-7 on my R71A. Good band conditions as of recent.

After hearing the same old traffic repeatedly, I moved on and have been monitoring fishermen (uncertain) operating between authorized maritime/aeronautical mobile frequencies.
