• 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 have looked in the list for this STARS system and see nothing for the Martinsville & Henry County area. Does anyone know what frequencies will give me access to the State Police in my area? I'm new to this and I appreciate any help you can give me.

You need to find out what division you are in, and according to the state police division map you are Division 6 and Area 42. So you will have to find out which Salem channel you are (ie SALEM 1 or SALEM 2). Hope this helps.

If you are looking for STARS sites that cover your area, program your scanner to receive the sites in Patrick and Pittsylvania counties. The names of the sites would be Bull Mountain and White Oak Mountain. STARS doesn't need a site in every county, and it looks like Henry doesn't have one. And choose the talkgroups (aka channels) for Division 6/Salem Division as mentioned above.
