• 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:

Still on 110.9 / $455 ??

Yes 148.1500 and 148.1250 are the Two Repeaters, but knowing/confirming the PL and NAC help in determining which Repeater ID

thanks

Hearing some weak radio checks in northern VA on 148.125 analog. Now ending, but there will be another radio check at 1600z.

The Virginia Defense Force also happens to be doing radio checks this morning on the VA STARS system.

1412z- Now doing radio checks on 148.15 PL167.9 doing radio checks without replies. Same station is doing the call- Jefferson399. Heard a Free State (MD) unit check in. Now some Jefferson units checking in. Another check will begin in 2 hours.



1428z- ALE on 4.585. Some other tone is constant though.

1450z- Heard a Gaithersburg, MD unit calling on 148.15 PL167.9. Now faintly hearing someone on 148.15 PL146.2.
1454z-Gaithersburg Base on 148.125 PL141.3 now. Then getting a digital sounding signal that won't break squelch on my digital entry with NAC search for the same frequency. Opened squelch all the way and saw NAC585 briefly.

1530z- Culpeper,VA = Minuteman Base

148.1500 167.9 - should be R-14 Mt Weather (VA)
148.1500 146.2 - should be R-26 Marbury (MD)
148.1500 141.3 - should be R-20 Easton (MD)

$585 would be from R-20

That location for R20 doesn't seem right. That's 80 miles away. That's doable for me in the summer with ducting, but definitely not in the winter.
I think the R21 Ellicott City repeater is more likely.


An aircraft from Carroll Co MD is now airborne and on Air 1 analog.

Constant Watch net checks now beginning on R14.

Here's a good resource. http://mdcap.org/userfiles/file/MDWG_Repeater_Map_(Rev-004_10-23-2010).pdf

Haven't seen any info listing Ellicott as a Repeater site

However, 100% Intel had R-20 as Easton, with R-01 thru R-64 , it would be ODD to put the same Freq/Tone within 200 Miles (Altho - they could have moved the Repeater since the info was obtained)

Anyone closer verify ?

Great Map
FYI - R-21 would be 148.1250 141.3 not 148.1500

Anybody have any HF hits? Im getting ALE on 4585 & 9047USB but no voice traffic yet. Does CAP even operate HF voice traffic nets?
