• 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:

Unfortunately, according to this license, they are probably using MOTOTRBO, which cannot be monitored with a scanner. (The license indicates emission code 7K60FXE, which is used for MOTOTRBO.)

You may want to go near the casino, and listen to the frequencies on this license, just to make sure they're actually using TRBO. It's possible they're just using them in analog mode, although then the license would be incorrect.

I found today that the freq in the list by dtscho are indeed in use at Harrington raceway, but they sounded like digital. Just a buzz. I had programed them on an analog unit. The freq listed by de784 are in use at the Dover Raceway in the casino and in analog. I will try again using my digital scanner and see what happens.

Tried monitoring them on my bc895xlt (analog) with ouside antenna on roof. Nothing heard. I'm about 7 airmiles from the casino/track. Will be interested on what a digital scanner turns up.

I sat in the parking lot today with all the freqs in a pro-96 all I could hear is the same buzz as I reported before. No conversion to digital like DAFB will do.The buzz could not be picked up more than about 1 mile from site. Was in Dover today and all the casino was in analog. I am sure that for the state fair there will be other radios on different set up in use possibly using the Dover freqs.

Harrington casino

During the State fair DSP uses one of the special/tac ? talkgroups which are able to be monitored with a digital scanner. Are the Dover casino freqs in the RR database?

Harrington

Found the answer to my own question in the De discussion field. Will give these a shot. I don't think I'll be able to hear the NASCAR suff from my QTH outside of Harrington but I think I should be ab le to hear the base stations for the Hotel and Casino? What do you think, Dave? Have you heard them any distance from the site?

I have heard at times the casino here in the house just north of the ball park in the development. It is spotty thought . I doubt that you could get them In Harrington.
