    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:

On limited indoor antennas, I'm in a poor position to confirm this, but I can't seem to hear much on this tonight.

If it is still up, it probably should be added to the database - along with the comment about recent P25 activity on it.

I heard it two days ago when I was in the Northern VA area, coming in nice and loud in P-25 digital.

Does anybody know if this is in fact still up? i haven't been hearing anything on 159.15.

Also, is there another VHF frequency with citywide type of activity in p25? I recall hearing something in the 158.xxxx range?

Thanks, I will keep an ear out for it. Can anyone advise who uses 158.85? Is it MPD, and if so, is this linked to a specific TG off the trunking system? I thought that MPD was all UHF TRS...
