• 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:

Does anyone know if tower sites outside of Caldwell county broadcast Caldwell county fire on the Viper network? If so, which locations?

Also, does Caldwell fire still use VHF for most activity or have they converted to Viper?

Thanks in advance for responses.

They use both. I will have to double check but I believe Catawba and Burke broadcast Caldwell also.

If memory serves me correctly. City and County agencies that use VIPER as their primary radio solution have their disptach talkgroups set to roam off towers in their home county as well as a county in each direction. Again if memory serves me correctly.

They probably use the Linville (Grandmother Mountain) site as well. I have heard Caldwell County SHP units on the Grant's Mountain site also.
