    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:

Pennsylvania Power & Light (PPL) in Lehigh Valley still use 37.700 PL146.2 but not as heavy as past, all trucks seem have low-band or VHF antennas on them still. Also noticed alot have the MDT in use.. Was trying figure out if the Pocono Region still using 37.600 or on something else.

Dont recall seeing much of a frequency list for them, I do have all frequencies used at PPL Tower Headquarters in Allentown but all UHF..

Thanks

Still hearing comms on 37.46 in Poconos. In fact the regular CW ID seems much stronger in the past week.
