• 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:

So I posted in the ham section that I am starting to study for my technician license.

I was wanting to start listening on my 436 to the Hamilton CountyCinti repeaters to hear the general conversations.

While Sentinel/RR does have a couple repeaters listed, I am not hearing anything at the moment. This could be completely normal, but am wanting to make sure I have everything programmed so I can listen later this evening in my area.

I think when I first got the unit i did hear some Skywarn chit chat..but nothing major. My area could be idle right now.



Traveling last week I did hear a lot of chatter on Gatlinburg, TN area repeaters...(a couple hours worth of political talk)

Congratulations on studying for your Technician license. You may wish to check out this link... Get on the Air

Tying up a repeater with political talk... What a concept.

quite allot of 2 meter has went to dmr
In your area perhaps, but not around here. The large majority of ham repeaters in Ohio and most other place I've traveled are still analog, and likely to stay that way.

Yeah. In Ohio, analog is king. YSF systems are growing; but they are carrying mostly analog traffic.

These days, most repeaters are silent.

There are regular daily nets starting around 7:30pm (IIRC) on a couple of 2M repeaters in the Greater Cincinnati Area. I often listen to them and have also participated when propagation favors it.

NG8P at Monix might be able to help you out. He is a regular participant in those nets and a heck of a good guy. monix

If memory serves me, at least two of the nets are on OHKYIN repeaters. OH-KY-IN Amateur Radio Society
