• 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:

Bob we have had moderate success with this....One night we was lucky and had 5 repeaters linked to us throughout the state by operators...Last Night we was giving the opportunity to hold a State Wide rag chew....Needless to say we hit it off with a bang....we had 42 repeaters linked on VHF and UHF....We had upstate members and low country members as well as NC in here as well....it was awesome...and do you know how to use the SCHEART system??

I can hear/hit about 5 or 6 SC Heart Repeaters from my house, so one of them may have been linked to the conf. main. or of course on the weekends all of them are linked...

Caesar ONLY the UHF SCHEART repeaters are linked on the weekends...the VHF are still stand alone repeaters but we do not connect to Conference main...Instead we connect to Conference Back-up...so even during the weekend you wouldn't hear us unless you linked the 146.715 repeater to Conference back-up...We could ragchew statewide on the weekends UHF and VHF but...we like having people connect to us this way everyone would have to talk at least once every 10 mins or their repeater will drop from the link...so it encourages members to talk...Hope to catch you there...
