• 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:

Picked all this up early today: 173.1000 P25 all in the clear. They were running tags that came back to people in Macon Co. and I know this is a FBI freq.
171.6625 P25 all in the clear, from the talk I think this may be ICE.
167.7875 P25 all in the clear, I have heard traffic all day on this freq. and know its USM/FBI out of Auburn.

Had a new freq (for me) last week. 171.175 $330 with an input on 167.5125 $330. All coms were encrypted. Nothing heard on this freq since late Sat night. I assume these are FBI coms? If someone can confirm let me know. I'm new to fedcoms and my list is very short Thanks

I'm going to venture a guess [based on past experiences with some federal radio systems] that 171.1750 is a Repeater and 167.5125 is also a Repeater with something down in the between 162-166 Mhz as the input

Most [Not ALL] federal Wide Area systems use ONE input [common] and Multiple Sites [Repeaters] for the outputs. :wink:

ICE here in Boston has One input for 5 outputs [MA and NH]
same NAC input, each Rptr has it's own NAC output :D
