    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:

While searching 800mhz tonight, I came across a P25 control channel that is strong in Lexington. Here's where it gets very interesting: the WACN is BEE00 and the SysID is 1D9, the exact same as the Charleston County P25 system. The NAC is N1D0. The frequency I am monitoring is 866.475 and it broadcasts a site number of 105. 866.8625 is reported as an alternate CC by Pro96Comm. Both of those frequencies are licensed to the SC Budget and Control Board (WPUR551) with a transmission site in Columbia.

What could this mean? Is this the future of Palmetto 800 being tested? Maybe the rumors that the Charleston County system is the first part of the new Palmetto 800 are true.

So far I haven't monitored any voice data or affiliations and Pro96Comm does not show any neighboring sites.

Sounds like the first site of Zone 2 of the the 7.X upgrade to the Pal8 system.
