    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.

In the past week or so, I've noticed an absence of radio traffic on the Lane (Bay) Bridge frequency. Has anything changed? New PL? New transmitter/tower? New frequencies?

I Live in Annapolis and normally receive them on both the 785 and my 396 - now nothing...

Just heard a call...

CA-
I'm pretty sure I just heard someone calling "Lane" for a 10-29... will sit on 453.575 (CT 127.3) for awhile, just to be certain.
Regards,

Reception does seem especially bad...

Just heard a call for another unit at the scales... wonder if the weather has anything to do with the poor reception, today.

In the past hour or so, Iv'e been receiving weak transmissions for the Lane Bridge, so I guess the Freq/PL combination is still good. Maybe it's the weather, or maybe their antenna/transmission cable has been damaged by recent rains and thunderstorms?

You have a point... something must be up. I don't every remember reception ever being so poor for that detatchment. I actually had to adjust my squelch to bring it in...

Have a great 4th!

Most recently heard them last night - all three that operate on that .575 freq - Bay Bridge/Port-Key Bridge/Hatem Bridge with their respective PL tones. McHenry on .475, Nice Bridge on .975 and BWI Airport on .900 are all operating normally also. No changes detected.

I have had days occasionally where the Bay Bridge signal gets weak. No idea why.

The Lane/Bay Bridge detachment is now coming in loud and clear here in Annapolis. Maybe the atmospherics have improved (or the transmission cable dried out...)
