• 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:

Over last few months I've been seeing a lot of new tg's in the 15k, 5k 9k and 45k range. As of late the alco system hasn't dipped below 16k for s.o. Seems like lots of new tg's and alot of rearranging....

alco system

Well i'd say yes they are ghost, BUT i've never seen it do this before in my life. ever since alco fd started swapping id's , these started popping up, lots of 45k, some 15k , a couple 5k range, and and some 47k. I've also seen that the old alameda and fremont tg's have seemed to turn into some type of pd tg's also.....

There are probably some simulcast phasing issues that are screwing with the data stream. It often sounds like a shimmering.

The techs are probably not too interested in driving out to Crane to fix it...LOL I've been out to the site. It's seriously in the boonies.
