• 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:

In the FCC license section for different agencies is there a way to determine which is the input frequency for the repeater when more than 1 mobile frequency is listed? This is for VHF High freqs.

Just by looking at that its not totally evident how the system is configured but it appears as if its multiple inputs(a poor mans voting system), perhaps each one is from antennas favoring a different direction - not sure. You would probably have to know someone associated with the local gov radio dept to tell you how its set up.

Just as a tech and coordinator for 40+ years, my guess would be one repeater with at least two receiver sites. Any frequency listed as FX1 (indicating a control station fixed link) and Mobile is a good bet to be a repeater input, and if there is more than one listed as such, that's an indicator of more than one receiver site. Agreed, poor man's voting system.....

No, there is no way to tell. A good guide is to look at the frequencies that are mobile and control station (MO & FX1). Those are good guesses for inputs to repeaters.

In your particular example, the 154.7700 is matched to a repeater not on this license (see KVV880), so the 153.9800 may be input for the 155.7900 output.
