• 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:

Hello there. I was wondering if any of my neighbors over there in Idaho could provide any intel, as to whether or not the Boise NF South Net is still Operating on 172.200, or has possibly been changed to another frequency. I’m planning a trip to the area. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If there has been a change, and right now, I have no way to monitor or verify this, my first guesses would be 171.525, which was the prior designated tactical frequency, or 173.7625, which was the assigned flight following frequency. Under the new NTIA guidelines, both of these frequencies would no longer be allowed for simplex operations, but would be for Repeater Net ops. I received a report in the Spring that traffic on 172.200 had ceased, hence the reason I’m asking for help.
