• 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:

As a courtesy, I want to alert the membership that on site 20 Windsor the alternate control channel status on 143.145 was removed. You may wish to adjust your programming accordingly.

This is why there is a green highlight for FleetNet Zone 1.

I also noticed that there's a control channel listed for the Cedarwoods site as 143.805. This is impossible as the radios don't have any control channels above 143.145 programmed in them. Is anyone within range of this site able to run TRUNK88/Trunker and see what the proper Alternate Control Channel is?

That doesn't stop the radios from adding the frequency to their almanac when a site broadcasts it as an ACC or neighbour PCC.

Code:

The problem with it as a possible PCC though is that a radio being turned on in an area where that is the only site it can hear, will never get the tower, as it wouldn't have the neighbour list. Then again, the 32 control channel limitation isn't there anymore, so newer radios being added wouldn't care.

Are the radios programmed to revert to full band scans? Would solve the problem...
