• 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:

Sure join the atcsmon Yahoo! group, download ATCS Monitor, and load some of the On-Line scanner feeds. (some even have the audio feed to go with it) There is a lot of information on the group site.

Yup, you can add a discriminator tap to many 800/900 MHz capable scanners, or modify old Maxtrac radios (the best solution really, selectivity and sensitivity is superb compared to a scanner or other general coverage receiver) to receive the data transmitted in the field with the aforementioned software. Field monitoring really helps out when railfanning and is so much more reliable than trying to catch crews calling signals.

Or, you can just monitor from home without a radio by monitoring one of the many servers available.
