• 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:

AF-1 doesn't use any special freq's when communicating to ATC. SS has always been encrypted in the past. The motorcade is about the only stuff you can hear.

Erik-

Curious, I haven't listened to a Presidential arrival before. Is a CAP common place? I'm sure a TFR will be in affect so my guess is there will be one. Do you know of any MilAir freqs I don't have listed that may be in use? As long as they comply with the TOS, I'll throw them in on the feed too.

Thanks!

A couple of days before the PODUS arrives; two C-17's normally come in bringing all of the support gear (Helicopters, limos). About 15-30 min before the PODUS touches down, there is a ramp freeze and nobody is allowed to move around the ramp area. There hasn't been a CAP for a while now on any presidential visits. Once AF-1 is on the deck, road blocks are started and as soon as the VIP leaves the base, things are back to normal. The same things happen in reverse when he comes back to the base and departs. A TFR will be in place while he is in town. There aren't any other Freq's you can add to your feed that will not violate the TOS.

[ USSS use P25 NAC 001 on their frequencies ]
Awesome, Thank you! One quick question, as I am trying to fill in the blanks from a period where I was out of the hobby (and technology passed me by). I have a Uniden 296D P-25 scanner. From my understanding, a NAC is loosely similar to a PL/DPL. Is it necessary to program a NAC to receive their signal? Or would just programming the P-25 system in w/o a NAC still let me hear traffic?

Thanks!

All you need is the Freq. NAC isn't required

That's what I was hoping. I just haven't fooled around with P-25 NACs since the 296D won't do those anyway. Now I need to look around for the manual and figure out how to set it to decode P-25 conventional freqs as opposed to trunking systems. I assume this can't be too hard, I just need to play around with it. I have never had a reason to set it to conventional P-25 before.

Thanks for the info!

Most times it will auto-detect P25 digital and just decode it. I'm not sure about that particular radio, but most these days have an option to set the frequency as P25 just like you would select FM, NFM and AM.

I guess all you boys that like to publish the movements of government people forget that the enemy uses all intel it can get to it's advantage. If by some chances any of you have a government security clearance, you do stand the chance of loosing it for your actions.

Don't go blaming me for trying to be the enforcement hand of anybody. I am just trying to point out what consequences your actions can have. Some things are better left unsaid and not passed along.

You should think just for a moment before you go publishing all the details that you think will make you look good in the eyes of the radio community. There are others that use this site for purposes that can have dire results.

Maybe you should send a copy of this to all the news agencies in the Denver metro area for they all had a more detailed itinerary then what has been discussed here including what time he lands to what time his speech and fundraising events occur and where he will be at and they concluded with what time he would be taking off ... so I am pretty sure the "BAD GUYS" will more likely be watching the news then scanning this forum for info

Any indication what part of town he's going to be in?

(gridlock avoidance question)
Ron I think he's speaking at Abraham Lincoln High School in the afternoon, around 1415 according to 9news. He'll fly into Buckley in the morning. So coming from up North I am not sure if you'll have to stop for the honor of seeing him drive by in the beast. :wink:

It's all publicly available info so your comments are moot.

Maybe you should call the FAA and tell them not to post it.

Find an empty channel in the bank you wish to use and type it in directly and press E to enter it. It will auto detect P25 transmissions. Make sure that the digital card in the radio is enabled by Pressing "Menu/Back" then 3 0 1.

Also make sure the battery pack is charged. The radio current drain is around 300 ma when the digital card is enabled and tends to discharge the OEM battery rather quickly. If you are able run the radio off of the AC adapter.

Despite being "old" the 296D does the job for programming on the fly and narrowband frequencies.

Thank you! That's what I was thinking, but wasn't sure since I couldn't find the book. I looked up the manual on Google and that's pretty much what it said, but it was kind of vague.

Thanks again!
