    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:

Need some guidance with this one, so I'm coming over to the Kentucky forum.....

...the other morning I was SEARCHing the bands, in particular the 900mHz
band, and ran across two unknown frequencies that were broadcasting a
DMR "pulse"....

The two frequencies I caught that were broadcasting were:



They were showing that they were part of a CAPACITY+ system with a DCC:

I have searched RR.com for a DMR system with these two frequencies to no

FCC searches show nothing in OHIO...
and nothing in Indiana...
but, an FCC search does show a possibility in Northern Kentucky. Matter of fact,
the Campbell County Board of Education (WPPB224) comes back showing a
good return on both of those freqs together....

Now, I have gotten users, especially this one, from the Northern Kentucky area before
during good tropo, so, this one normally wouldn't be a big thing....
However, when I looked this one up on Radioreference.com; it came back
as an Analog Motorola Type II Smartnet system....

My question is..... Did they convert over to DMR recently?
