• 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:

Hello

Try looking up your area in the RR freq area. I have a old 92 that cannot do rebanding but with local conventional stuff, railroads, marine (living 1 mile from the ocean gives us lots to hear), state and federal and amateur radio I have almost 160 channels filled up.

Keepak, All,

You might try looking up the low-powered frequencies (154.6 is one of them).

More than likely they are listed as MURS or FRS frequencies. Power is less
than 5 watts. They maybe on UHF as well.

Now, those buildings are made from steel beams dnd sheet metal, NOT very
radio friendly. You may or may not be able to hear their handi-talkies out
side the building. Take the scanner inside and listen. This Winter, it will be
too cold to sit in a vehicle for long without burning up some serious gas in
keeping the heater going, LOL!

GOD BLESS,
Warmest Regard,

"Buck"
