• 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 noticed today that I lost Stratford PD and Shelton PD! They usually come in very well here in Trumbull. New Haven is still very strong as are other surrounding towns (Fairfield, Other Valley towns, W Haven, Easton, etc...) I hear Stratford online via Live Audio so I know they are functioning. I also noticed that Fairfield FD is weaker than normal. Is this just normal propagation?

Still going!.......

It has to be something on your end, I hear them both loud and clear here in Ansonia on my PSR310 portable.3-4 signal bars with clear audio.

The 2nd village Anson Phelps founded in CT.
I live in Ansonia and I hear pretty much everyone 5x5 the exception being Easton I have a problem with do to my location in town. I'm lower than where Manny lives.

Could be the after effects of the storm to the propagation or something on your end. Where in Trumbull are you (Nichols, Long Hill, Tashua or Center)?

Long Hill. Stratford and Shelton PD did come back. I think it was propagation. NH was strong as ever. I use an indoor ground plane I built into an antenna amp. The radiator is a RS 800mhz rubber duckie with a bnc to F adaptor. Radials are 6 inch held onto the f connector with a small hose clamp! Works very well on 460mhz as it's pretty much 1/4 wave there. (NH through Fairfield on up to Bethel) Great on 800 (Trumbull, Shelton, cspern, etc...) It sits on a widow sill. I may put something outside someday. It even works well for high band. I get all the Valley pd, Bport FD, Brookfield, Easton, etc... Low band is a bit of a challenge but not much there anymore. Trumbull FD is OK and UI has a very strong repeater. I get some NH county hotline and some Emerg. management (zone 1 and 2) It's a little fussy about where I put it. Even moving it 3 inches will change everything. OK for now!
