• 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 stopped by Metro Airport on Friday to look for some tanker activity. I found Tanker 163 (Bae-146) and Tanker 131 (civilian C-130) come in to the USFS Tanker Base. Tanker Base freq is 123.975 MHz. in addition to the other Metro freqs of 118.6 MHz Twr and 121.7 MHz. Approach & Departure uses 126.1 MHz. Later in the day I was in Pueblo West for a photography show at a friend's house. I got there early and listened to the Air - Ground Ops on 169.2 MHz. Quite the show!

Wow, awesome pictures! I wasn't aware of that Tanker Base freq, great to know. I live near BJC and I somewhat routinely search the VHF airband, but I haven't stumbled upon 123.975. Maybe it's not used very often.

Usually they report inbound to let the base know their ETA, fuel state, and any other info. Only used during times when we have fires in Colorado where Broomfield is supporting the effort.
