    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.

I heard that you can't hear any AWIN goodness at all in Tennessee, even if located in Memphis.

I tried the Shell Lake site a while back and never heard any CC's. :(

From what I hear, coverage on the AWIN system is VERY limited...That's why there are so many statewide towers..From what I hear but I'm not for sure...That's what I've heard though..That maybe why..

AWIN in Memphis

I have a GRE PSR 500 with a stock antenna and I can hear AWIN on President's Island.

Harbor Town and up towards De Wit Spain airport, up & down Riverside Drive and on Front St., south on I-55 until ya make the turn at the refinery is OK......once ya get in amongst the buildings or head more easterly ya lose any signal ya may have.....

I work on PI and I hear AWIN right until I walk in the door of my building.....all metal structure. I can still get all of Crittenden Co. analog and I can hear Memphis' P25 system just fine.

AWIN is just so weak once ya get east of West Memphis........doesn't make for good inter-operability in my opinion.

I have heard AWIN from NW MS on occasion......last week as I was driving back from Jackson, MS I was catching Troop D (Walnut Corner tower in Phillips Co,) from between Clarksdale & Tutwiler on US 49.......that's the second time I've done that.

I can't say much about DeSoto Co. coverage tho......don't know how far down you'd have to go until ya lose Shell Lake and pick up Walnut Corner.
