• 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:

Hey all- It's been a long time since I've been gone but I'm back and still in the big, bustling town of Nunn, Colorado! The scanner's been off for as long as I've been so it's time to find my old software and update some frequencies.
Hope everyone had a safe day in this snow/slush.

Which scanner do you have Jenny?

That area of Weld County is on the states DTRS system and your local control channels have recently re banded.

Scanner-

I'm running the BearCat246T and am definately finding that there's not as much traffic on these old frequencies. ;-)

Regrettably the 246T will only work on analog trunked systems not digital ones like Weld and now Larimer Counties.

But some Weld and Larimer County feeds are available at www.scancolorado.com

Uniden 396 or 996T then.

Jen, FYI - the Uniden 396 is a hand held unit like the 246. The 996 is a mobile unit intended for vehicles but can be used with a 12 volt power source just about anywhere and has more bells and whistles such as GPS.
