    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 enjoying my new BCD996P2 and have mostly figured it out. I'm finding a few odd things with the GSP channels, and I am relying on the RadioReference database. Here in Atlanta with a Ringo Ranger RX2b on my roof tuned to 155 MHz, I receive some GSP posts quite far away -- for example, I receive Thomaston, which is far to my south and Blue Ridge which is far to the north. Missing in action, however, are Newnan, Forsyth, LaFayette, Villa Ricca, even though I have these channels programmed into the scanner with the NAC codes listed in the RR database for GSP. That would seem to suggest that RR may have some errors with regard to GSP. Note that Thomaston and Blue Ridge are much farther away from me than Newnan, Forsyth and Villa Ricca. Any insight from you would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Incidentally, I do receive many GSP channels in north and central GA (e.g. Cartersille, Dalton, Griffin) in addition to those I mentioned that are so far to the south and the north of Atlanta.

If you're getting Thomaston, are you getting anything from the posts on Perry?

When I travel through on I 75, I can pick up Perry, Dublin, Tifton, Cordele, Valdosta, Douglas, and Monroe on P25. Thomaston and Griffin are still on analog and I can pick them up with no problem also. However other post repeaters like Madison Post 8 and a few others aren't even being used at this time. I can hear dispatch on CH 4 "154.905 analog base / mobile" talking to units somewhere. Not sure if this is what they are using for the Post 8 area until they make the switch over to their P25 repeater. In a nutshell, it looks like the state's radio system is a complete mess and nightmare for the state leos out in the field risking their life's.

Dawson, thanks for your reply to my post. I haven't considered that the GSP may not be using some of these channels, yet I'm still wondering where Villa Ricca and Forsyth and Newnan have gone as they were all fairly strong signals when they were on simplex 154.68.

I am listening on a Uniden BCD536HP Desktop/Mobile analog/digital scanner and my antenna is a DPD Productions Omni mil-air antenna that picks up everything close and far away.

Frequencies for GSP I pick up is GSP Perry 155.460, GSP Dublin B 155.5575 GSP Thomaston 159.600, GSP Milledgeville 155.4525, GSP Manchester 154.8825 and picking up possible GSP Jekyll Island 154.115 DMR?

N4CYA, that is very impressive. I hope you are enjoying the BCD536HP. I'm really enjoying the range of the GSP digital channels. After adjusting my antenna today, I am receive clear signals from on the GSP channels from the the Tennessee border all the way down to Thomaston and Manchester. There are a few channels (e.g. Villa Ricca) that are still mysterially missing.

Yep, I am enjoying the BCD536HP one of the best scanners I've ever owned. That is cool you're getting more signals from the GSP transmissions from dispatch to officers and etc. I live on a hill then on top of a another big hill that improves signal coverage. :D

I'm scanning GSP right now and can pick up GSP Tifton 154.9125 that is a good distance away from me.
