• 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'm planning on testing a dipole antenna for my CB soon, and I'd like to request the listening ears of another CB'er when I do.

I'll be transmitting (within the next week) around the 640/I75 area first. Then I will soon be hiking up some of Knox county's higher areas to test the reach of a standard class radio.

I'm gonna hike, specifically, House Mountain Trail. Which should put me facing the NorthWest from the East side of the County.

If anything, I could give times and channels which I will try to make it out on. Just in case anyone would like to listen.

I use the radio shops down on watt rd for alot of radio checks from far away. They don't always like to give radio checks, but I find it easier to carry a business conversation on with them, asking simple things such as pricing on tuning antennas, hours of operation, If they have a brand of something. You can gauge your signal to them by throttling your carrier or even mic power, and asking if you are readable. I like to blame it on bad tuning, and asking how much that costs to fix. They use antrons 30 foot up, and one would assume large kickers. If you cant find anybody, you can always try this.

Interesting. It would be awesome if I could hit them from house mountain!

Im over here in New Market. You would have to have some power to reach me because there is a hill that blocks reception from Knox's direction.
