• 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:

Did you program the new Jackson Tower frequencies into your scanner? They should look like this:

851.48750
851.68750
852.56250
852.73750
852.96250 Alternate Control Channel
853.06250 Control Channel

Another issue might be if the Jackson Tower is in site trunking mode for any reason. If so, it would not network with the other nearby towers, but may have some local traffic in the Jackson area, but nothing for other areas.

No, didn't go back to 868. That would require a total re-tuning of the combiners, re-programming the site, and post testing the site. Don't know why that would happen.

I understand that but I am listening to 868.0625 as I type this, 2 weeks ago it was 853.0625.

My error guys. This site was re-banded (for a very short time), then returned to the old freqs due to hardware limitations. Will be back soon.
