    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:

Hi, for a while I've been hearing o and r gas being simulcast on 451.0875 100.0 pl and I was wondering what would be the point in having this uhf link considering it has awful audio quality and keeps cutting out during transmissions. I live about 5 minuets walking distance from their main antenna site on route 59 and it's just not clear at all. Btw I did notice a worker had a uhf portable in his car.

PAC/RT is a mobile extender. Also known as a "crossband repeater". It's basically the same as the current Pyramid repeaters used in the fire apparatus for TACT-1, but "PAC/RT" is Motorola's name for it.

Although, looking at the FCC license, they do have it licensed as a base in Spring Valley. It's possible that they repeat Gas East and Electric East low band onto UHF so there's in-building coverage there.
