• 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:

Planning for our yearly September trip to Salvo, NC. I noticed that Dare County has recently been granted a handful of 800mhz frequencies for Buxton and Kittyhawk. All of the base station licenses are in Buxton. Is this the beginning of a transition to an 800mhz system for Dare County? It seems like the current PD, fire, and EMS communications systems work pretty well for the county's needs!

Also, VIPER has licenses for Rodanthe, Buxton, and Kitty Hawk in Dare County. Are these system sites active?

Any other goodmonitoring news for the OBX?
