    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:

Does anybody here know what Macalester College is doing for radios currently? It appears as if they have a couple of current FCC licenses. Pure speculation on my part is that they may have had some analog FM repeaters and then got licensed for a digital system. I also know that some organizations get licensed, but don't necessarily get those systems on the air either.

Here is a "laundry list" of those frequencies. The last one appears to be expired. Sometimes organizations continue to operate on expired license, however.

1) 461.325

2) 464.175

3) 461.675

4) 461.900

5) 451.5313

6) 452.7563

7) 461.3688

8) 461.7313

9) 151.7450

I heard activity on 461.325000. It is a part of a MOTO TRBO Capacity Plus system and is using Color Code 12.

I believe 461.325 CC12 is part of the Communications Management Group Cap + System in Downtown Minneapolis.
I used to monitor Mac Security on 464.175 analog but that went silent a few years ago after the trunks License appeared- I have not been able to pick up the trucked sytem From my monitoring locations.

Steve,

Thank you so much for the reply. Now that I think about it, that is totally consistent with what I was hearing, too. I didn't hear any of the other frequencies, which wouldn't make sense IF the others were all part of a Capacity Plus MOTO TRBO system. Plus, it is licensed as 11K2F3E, which is straight up narrow-band FM, not MOTO TRBO. And, the license specifies conventional, not trunked.

The other four frequencies are licensed as trunked. I definitely need to do some more listening when I am in that area.

Jim
