• 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:

Burnet County has gone all digital/P25. They are tied to the GATRRS system BUT, they are operating VHF non - trunked. They have several sites. Check the GATRRS system on RR for the information.

I'm hearing radio traffic on 156.210; The officer said "on Ops 2" I don't see this frequency as part of any of the TRS radio freqs for Burnet Co. Right after he talked, it also did a morse code ID. I also do not find an Ops 2 talkgroup in Burnet Co.

That is on this license: WQDA719 (BURNET, COUNTY OF) FCC Callsign Details

That license has three separate base (FB8 station code) for three different locations (one per site/location). Two of them are in Burnet County, the third is in Llano. It's licensed as trunked. Possibly undocumented extra voice channels added?
