• 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:

Currently listening to voice inversion FM comms on several of the Marine channels. It is not digital, but old style FM Voice Inversion encryption. Sounds like the same person testing on different channels.

VHF channel 25 (161.850/157.250) are VTAC 17 and VTAC 17D for some inland parts of the USA, including all of Utah.
But since you said "several of the Marine channels", it's likely someone messing around with some VHF marine radios. I know some truckers were using them for a bit (might still be).

Channel 10 and 83 are the two I remember. I'll need to listen to the recordings tonight to determine the others. There were several channels being used. It was almost like someone was testing/checking different channels. No lengthy conversations.
