• 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 was unaware that tower 555 was "Weld S.W. Simulcast". I was under the assumption this was a single tower and not part of a simulcast system.

Currently, RadioReference has it simply labeled as Fort Lupton.

It's been a 2 site simulcast configuration for awhile now. One tower is at the Southwest substation in Del Camino/Firestone the other at the Fort Lupton substation.

This replaced the single site that was on the old broadcast tower East of Dacono.

Fort Lupton had poor coverage issues with the single site after the split from DTRS.

There was a minor discussion when it first started at http://forums.radioreference.com/co...07113-frcc-tri-town-now-2-site-simulcast.html. It ultimately didn't really change much of anything. Everything pretty much remained the same except for the modulation type and some coverage pattern changes.

I personally have it labelled as "Tri-Area Simulcast" since that is what the Fort Lupton site was known as.
