• 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:

Is it my location or are some of you seeing the same thing? As some of you know I am on a hill in Castle Rock and for my daytime scanning I am using a Radio Shack 800 MHz rubber duck on 30' of RG6u that is on the roof. Ok, I am getting tons of good comms from the Holly and the Beaver Creek sites. I live in an area with lots of PD and State Patrol and SO, This seems to be 24 hour a day, over 70% on the meter off of those towers.
Is this by chance or have those towers power been increased? It has been this way for over six months.

The channels are reused. You are likely hearing Lookout Mtn instead of Holly and Smoky Hill instead of Beaver Creek.
