• 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 the past week or so I have heard Baldwin Central and various depts talking about their VHF radios. BC will ask for a radio test on their VHF radio. When they do the test, I can hear the dept on the AFRN 700 system, but not BC. I've resurrected scanning the old VHF frequencies in the database, but I haven't heard anything yet. If I don't hear anything on analog I'll look for digital. Anyone else know what's going on?

My guess is a lot of the Fire Departments kept their VHF radios even though Central went to the 700 system, and the fire stations that are testing the VHF are low power and north of you so that is why you can't hear them.
I bet Orange Beach and South Baldwin have abandoned the VHF. This is just a guess.
We used to have a contact here for Baldwin, KingPin are you out there?
