• 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:

I traveled to and fro through the Carlisle area this weekend, and the two ham repeaters I found in a database somewhere on the internet, 145.270 & 147.000 (pl 118.8), were not working. I did catch a repeater on 145.430 but can't find that one listed on any database anywhere. Anyone know where it is?

145.430 (TONE 67.0) is the correct repeater for Carlisle. It is listed in repeater directories as
Mt Holly, Pa. which is just south of Carlisle a few miles.

There are so many different databases out there - some are even very helpful with maps to pinpoint the repeater location. But sometimes repeaters get listed that are coordinated but never get put on the air :-( Or there are some that were up and are now down for various reasons, but they remain on/in the databases for years :-(

Hi Mike - that is the nature of ham radio(change). All you can do is look for a data source that
tracks the change and updates their database. That is why I gave you the link for ARCC who
is the area coordinating org and they update their db 2 or 3 times a year. This will not help you
with the uncoordinated repeaters but then no db will with that.

Have fun & good luck to ya...
