• 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:

SkyWatch Traffic in Austin, Tx

You are hearing the Skywatch Traffic Airplane.
They transmit on 455.9625 and the base talks back to them on 450.9625
For the 2 way traffic you can put in the UHF trunked system or just listen on 461.5625 (or the in put 466.5625) but if you do not program this as a trunked system with the talkgroup you will hear other uses on the system including Johnny Rooter Plumbing. Monitor during morning and evening rush hour. There are certain laws that apply to monitoring these types of transmissions so monitor responsibly.
