    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:

If I can receive pirates comms with my current setup, then I should be able to receive legitamate U.S. Military Satcom transmissions, correct?

Is there a difference in equipment/antennas needed to monitor these?

If your receiving pirates your good to go. Problem is about 99% of military satcom is digital and encrypted, so the real challenge is finding the scarce analog traffic and the ultra rare comms where one or both users are unknowingly in the clear and pass sensitive traffic.

Glad to know! Now if I can just hear some MILSATCOM transmissions "in the clear". I monitor all the frequencies that have been posted here, but so far no joy.

I'm in Ohio. Are there any specific frequencies in the East that I should be monitoring?
