• 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:

Received this morning

This message is to notify you that the Cleveland National Forest’s “Forest Net” frequency will be down for 4-6 weeks starting December 2nd for a mandated radio frequency change. Our radio techs will be reprogramming all of the mountain top repeaters as well as base stations, mobiles and handhelds. During this time Cleveland NF “Administrative Net” will be our primary frequency. Once all the programming has been accomplished, we will advise you of the new frequency.

Will they be going P25? I noticed the CNF Law Net had changed freqs too a while back.

Being they run a lot of the older Daniels repeaters they would have to have received some decent funds to upgrade them, and Daniels sure aren't cheap. I'd wager a no P25 and yes to narrowband capability.

CNF Freq change

Gee, I wondered why I wasn't hearing anything on 172.275. I work at Heartland Fire, and the last I knew they were changing over. Thanks a lot for the post about the postponement, I just plugged 168.750 back in again!

Too much intermod/interference or something - they rescinded the memo to my agency and advised to return to the original pair.

The joys of the Federal government being licensed by NTIA and the non-Federal users being licensed by the FCC, and the occasional lack of coordination between the two.

When the CNF technicians tuned one of their repeaters to the new pair they found a broadcast entity is (legally) using the input frequency for a studio link, rendering the frequency unusable.

Oh man, I'm laughing at that one! Logically, it seems like they would first tune the expected new frequencies on a test receiver and/or spectrum analyzer in the area(s) being affected before going so far as to actually tune their repeaters!
