• 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:

Have heard on several occasions on the Center Point Channel (Ch1) the call "STAR 2". It is a helicopter unit that is based at the Bessemer airport. The times I've heard it are at night between about 9:00 and 10:00 P.M. Suspect there is a "STAR 1" but don't know for sure or what Channel the are usually on. If anyone knows would like the information. The UID for "STAR 2" is i42161.

Star 2

Have only heard them 2 or 3 times on the Center Point Channel. Haven't heard them on any other channel (Bessemer or Fultondale or the Tac Channels). Have heard them flying around out here in Center Point on several occasions, one on a night that the management of my apartment was trying to get all the residents of my section of the complex to move their cars so the parking lot could be repaved. They flew around the area for a while and I guess they were watching the "circus" on the ground. lol:
