• 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:

I am receiving 160.800 NAC 293 with a continuous 1000hz tone with +/- 5khz deviation.
The signal is 100% quite in Augusta around the Civic Center and 95% quite 10 miles east of Augusta.
I know that 160.800 falls in the RR Band but, this is P25 with a NAC 293 and it is not encrypted. Anybody aware of some agency doing testing North of Augusta?

Signal captured with 2 different pro-106s simultaneously at different locations 10 miles apart

A check of FCC Licenses shows WQQN981, State of Maine, MSCOMMNET Project. Location of Transmitter: Enterprise Drive Augusta. The system is currently under test. This Frequency is on my list which was updated about a month ago and the license was effective as of 02/05/2013. Thanks for confirming it for us.
