• 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 am looking for a list/roster for Navy ships that use Motorola Trunked systems (if one exists). Something like the one for Navy ships using MaCom/EDACS systems. I saw a list/roster for Motorola equipped ships once (can't remember where). I called myself searching for it but I probably haven't looked in the right place.

If not on MA/Com list, most use Motorola 400 system, though some use EDACS Standard. I live 9 miles (mostly across water) from Norfolk NavBase and rarely hear an unknown EDACS control but do pick up several unknown Motorola 400 control channels. Like those on MA/Com, the signals are very low.

Check the Suffolk County page in Massachusetts for a list of several. I randomly selected USS O'Bannon & USS Ramage, and found the frequencies used are the same but spacing in the custom table is different. Those in Norfolk are similar.

Watching hour 7 right now, brings back memories in 1958 and again in 60. We called it controlled crash.

I finally have listened to a 380-400 Mhz Hydra system this past week.
I'm more of a Motorola person, so I was not able to get the LCN Order, but
did find that the system was monitorable with a Conventional Scanner.

I recently submitted the info for the USS Bataan

Try this for some reading

Has anyone submitted their US Navy info to RR , other than me?
