• 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:

Listening to Cheshire county(Keene channel 7, 155.890), others also), when they broadcast and it comes over as a digital weather broadcast yet you can faintly hear them talk in the background, does that mean that they are encrypting their channel?

a. 155.8900 is not a valid frequency allocation. did you mean 155.8800, 155.8875 or 155.8950 ??
b. If you the NWS is not Digital - so whose WX Broadcast are you hearing, and if you can hear faint analog audio, it is not ENC
c. Likely you are experiencing intermod [interference]

According to RR(cheshire, keene) it`s listed as the channel I supplied(
155.89000 RMKeene PD 7Police Ch. 7 FMN Law Tac )
. Maybe they have it wrong. I`ll give the the 155.880(that does reference Keene as well) a try and see if it works out for me.

Sounds like your scanner receiver is getting "overloaded", when that happens you can hear all kinds of strange stuff... even stuff that isn't on the frequency you're selected on.
Scanner receivers are generally of very poor quality and overloading is compounded when you hook the scanner up to a higher gain outside antenna.

And since there is
a. No PL/DPL/NAC
b. No CallSign

I question the validity of the entry.
