• 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:

99% of everything there is on AWIN. A little VHF if any issues with AWIN arise.

Riding around in the park area with close call on this is what I caught
166.6. 170.9375. No nac or pl..should I post this in the federal forum too?
Jerry
Yeah, that's MAC 4...guess they requested to use it for some reason.
motorcycle rally for three days special event.
Only conventional still primary that I know of is Hot Springs Village , Mt Pine, lifenet EMS and ER's... If City is still on old system then FD is UHF. If the new 700 is up then everyone is on it
Yes, you should. But program in the 700 MHz Hot Springs system as well, with wildcard set "just in case"!
Any NEW TGs on AWIN for Garland you find please do submit them, as well as if the VFD's still tone out on VHF.
The feed status says "INTERNET OUTAGE DUE TO CABLE LINE CUT. POSSIBLE OUTAGE ALL WEEKEND " If that is the current situation, there's not much that can be done about it until the link to the internet is repaired. I don't know what discussions have taken place about the feed or if there is in fact a contract with a person to provide the feed. But if there is, complaining to the sheriff's dept that the feed isn't up might result in the agency ending the contract (if there is one), and the feed being terminated permanently.

The Garland County feed is about dead anyway as SO, County VFD's, are now full time AWIN. The feed ONLY carried the analog stuff, and ONLY county, as the radio the guy uses cant do P25, or trunking. Currently the only thing he can still run on it is Hot Springs Village, Mountain Pine, Diamond Head, and Lifenet EMS. He can't even run Hot Springs Fire as they are UHF and his radio is VHF. So unless he upgrades to an P25 Phase II scanner, or buys an new APX radio... The writing is on the wall here.
