• 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:

Med 8 disappeared from the airwaves a little while back and although I have seen a few inquiries, I have never seen an update as to what frequency they are now using for their ops. But I happened across them today on 160.200. So glad when a plan comes together.

153.02000 412 DPL is still being used by Med8. The repeater is in Weatherford and was being used recently. I don't normally hear the repeater unless I am on my way in or out of Parker County, especially closer to Weatherford.

Well I have now heard two complete scene response on this new freq. from the initial Alert to their RTB. So I am going to stick with 160.200, the previous freq. is dead to me here in Northeast Tarrant.

What area are you in where you are hearing this? Is it a repeater or simplex? What PL tone? Are you hearing the base station too or just the aircraft? Are you sure it isn't an adjacent channel (160.1925 or 160.2075)? Can you hear it on another receiver to rule out that is isn't an image or intermod?
It is strange that there are no licenses or pending applications for that frequency.

Just an update, I did catch them yesterday. Switched back and forth between the two channels and they are on both frequencies at the same time. Maybe a second repeater in the mid cities?
