• 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:

Hello everyone, I just moved out to Groton, CT from IA and am new to the area. I was wondering that ham repeaters are local to me, possible net times, and any other good information for a new comer to the area should know. Thanks!

ARRL over in Newington publishes a Repeater Directory every year that does a pretty good job of telling everything about individual repeaters, including special connections, access coding, etc. As I recall the cost is about $11.00.

Groton Town (vs City) is on its own stand alone 800 system 853.400 + 851.575. Ct SP is somewhat busy. Troop E is the troop in this area and is on the statewide trunk system in zone 8. You won't hear a lot of dispatches since they use MDT's, cellphones, etc.

Welcome to the area.
