• 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:

I live 1/3rd mile from BNSF rail in Oklahoma City Red Rock North subdivision. I have ATSC Monitor and the required files for Red Rock North & Red Rock South. I'm using network source. Using RTL-SDR to monitor 160.5600-MHZ NFM.

I have no idea what red and green lines mean. Also the flashing green dots that make it seem like its a crossing. :confused:

A green line means a dispatcher has cleared a route for a train to move through, a flashing green signal means the dispatcher has requested the route, a solid green means the equipment in the field is showing that the route is indeed clear. A red segment of track is showing a train is in that block.

A lot of great information is here,
