    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:

Just going thru creating a P96 file of Alameda, Santa Clara, and San Mateo Counties. However, I was wondering which sites are best for Oakland and Richmond. I'm most likely to pass to the north of both, probably in Marin somewhere (or along 37). Maybe on 680 or whichever 80 that is. Which site is the best, as I don't feel like having 4 banks so I have the main and backups.

TIA.

Bill,

Use the frequencies in the P96 file I posted. I'm not sure what sites they are but I found, by process of elimination of all the sites, that these have the best reception in the North Bay. You won't have any problems picking up Richmond up here with the standard rubber duck but Oakland is pretty poor. Comes in fine with a good mobile or base antenna though.

Richmond sites are all the same, we still use the original five freqs so put those in and you'll do fine throughout the area. I think the license has been granted for the four new channels, but nothing has been done with the system yet.

As for Oakland, just put in the big 13 channel site, the Seneca site only covers a little area out by the zoo and I never hear anything on it anyway.
