• 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:

Joint National Capital Region TRS is reporting a new site.

The US Naval Academy site is peering with a site 005-005 with a control channel of 388.1250MHz. I can't hear this system from northern Calvert County. Anyone else hearing anything here?

Not hearing anything in northern AA County.

You are right that it doesn't appear as a site or frequency on RR.

Just guessing, but maybe down closer to DC, like Anacostia area. Looks like that range... maybe a new control channel down there, and someone closer has a radio associating.

Lots of stuff has been associating with Ft Meade and USNA in the past year or so that never seemed to before.

Yeah, the affiliations are definitely interesting. I find it very interesting that the Pentagon FPA uses the USNA site even though it is so far away.

On another note, I'm still watching for the system at the Naval Research Laboratories here in Calvert County to start talking. It seems odd to have a low profile system (not much range) with so much capacity (6 channels + control channel) for such a small facility. It's even more odd to have such a system up and running but not peering with anyone else and with no traffic on it.

I regularly hear the Navy Yard, Walter Reed, Ft Belvoir, PAX River NAS and other places in DC coming over either the USNA or Ft Meade since last summer.

They seem to have opened up the individual sites to associating with radios not from their specific operating areas.

Having been on the system... that is the way it works. If your radio logs into a TG at a site, that TG is shared with all other sites having someone logged into that TG.

Yeah if you have the chance with P25 stuff, Pro96Com tends to be more accurate.

Site 005-005 has peered with the USNA site for some time now. I guess *someone* needs to get mobile and zero in on a location.

Re: Pro96com. It's too bad the developer hasn't added support for SDR dongles. The new ones are pretty rock solid, and very economical compared to a $300+ scanner. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a new version coming anytime soon (the developer is pretty busy with life it seems.) Maybe someone has "hacked" a method to use SDR dongles with Pro96com?
