• 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:

You would think with all this outside my back door there would be some kind of activity; all I see listed is about 3 frequencies listed; when the workers are parked their radios seem busy but I can never find them on my scanners

You are on the BNSF Cuba Subdivision which runs from Valley Park, Mo to Springfield, Mo.

There are two different channels used for voice,

AAR 70 161.160 is used from Lindenwood yard in St. Louis to Rosati
AAR 16 160.335 is used the rest of the way to Springfield

There are also 2 frequencies used for ATCS communications, you will hear these as short data bursts,

AAR 07 160.215 which is used from Valley Park to Stanton, Mo
AAR 57 160.965 which is used the rest of the way to Springfield.

They probably won't be on the frequencies licensed at that site unless they need to talk to dispatch.
If its a contractor they probably have their own frequencies instead of tying up the rr frequencies.

As a test, when the workers are present, I would configured a bank to hold half the AAR frequencies on the Pro 197, the other half on the BCD996XT and scan only that bank to see what you get. As @nd5y mentioned they might be on a different band but at least you would know it is not AAR.

Good hunting!
