• 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:

Low-level nuclear waste to be shipped through Nevada

Perkins Specialized Transportation
http://www.heavyhaul.com/

Perkins Radios:
466.2125 - DCS 311 (Main channel) - [Heard/Confirmed doing the Escondido-Riverside, California move]
464.3375 - DCS 245 - (AUX Channel?) [Heard/Confirmed doing the Escondido-Riverside, California move]

[ Let us know what you heard in Nevada State. or other Nevada info about this trip ]

* The 399-foot transport truck carrying a 380 ton low-level radioactive steam generator from the San Onofre nuclear power plant to Utah

* A nuclear steam generator is slowly making its way across states on a top-secret route from San Onofre to Utah, where it will be disposed of.

* Haul a lightly contaminated 750,000-pound piece of the plant's old steam generator

* The generator piece is painted with a thick coat of blue to prevent pieces of steel from chipping or flaking off.

* Three semi-trucks will haul the carriage—one in front and two in the back—at 15 mph. The journey to the dump site in Utah is expected to take three weeks.

* Fortunately, with 192 tires and 48 axles, the Perkins trailer is up to the task.

* Officials say that the radiation levels are small enough that standing next to it for an hour would be less exposure than getting dental x-rays.

It should be another few days before it gets to Nevada state line.
Since it just left San Diego County on Tuesday night. Riverside county on Wednesday.

I'm sure they have to reroute around the railroad bridge that goes over I-15 in Las Vegas.
But you guys knows the area little bit better.

Maybe keep checking YouTube videos to see where they are at each day :)

Does it appear to being going right through the test site? I can't figure out the town/dot listed on the Nevada side.

From the news article:
"Going north to Bishop in Inyo County, the route takes U.S. Highway 6 and Interstate 80 across Nevada into Utah."

Looks like the casing from my WindShield Wiper Motor...

Nice pic BTW. Can't imagine driving that thing in the sweltering 100 + temps...

That's amazing how that rig can turn (other related youtube videos). Should be on Modern Marvels!

I have removed several off topic posts. There are obviously two large truck transports in the desert SW. I moved the majority of the AZ one to the right thread. Please make sure you know which one you are posting about. :D

We are underway, en route to Tonopah. Hoping to make it to the junction with the E.T. Highway today.
