    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:

Hey everyone!

I just moved into Atlantic City, So I have to change around all my scanners for this area. I am on the 7th floor and get reception pretty well. I see there are a couple different sites for Atlantic County. I figured since I am in Atlantic City I would program Brigantine and Atlantic City sites in. They come in good but I am missing alot of calls from EHT, Galloway, Etc.. Do i need to program in each site to get everything? I would think they would simulcast on each site? Also if anyone has any 796 files for this area. that would be great!

You can also put in wildwood, they are fun to listen to in the summer and put in Cape May county fire 1, and upper twp. Everyone dispatches over fire 1 154.130 in the county.

Most talkgroups are only simulcast on a system when there's a radio affiliated with that talkgroup on the system.

Just to clarify I meant the Ocean City site. But you will be able to get OCFD VHF also.

And with today's great weather I could not help but think that OCBP will be on the air (along with all other BPs) in six weeks.

AND you should have no problem getting the entire Ocean COUNTY TRS system and all the LBI VHF.

Finally, if you want to go crazy you can get FDNY VHF and NYPD 400. I was picking up NYPD in Somers Point on a rubber duckie the other night.

BTW: what building are you in?
