    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'm hearing a repeater on 485.2750 and have not heard any voice or data yet except for the morse code call sign from it which is WPEP785. The signal is weak and noisy and coming from a long ways off, on the fringe of my antenna. Do not know if it's in idaho or montana or possibly canada. Have you heard of any repeaters with that call sign ? I've tried the FCC database with no luck and it's not a ham repeater that I know of yet. Any help would be appreiated.

Hi Mick

Thanks for the info!
That frequency (485.2750)is an image frequency of 463.6750 on my radio. So that solved that mystery.
