• 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:

Well, I printed out the spreadsheet and there are some errors and a lot of questions.

#1 - Where did you get this info, a reliable source or personal calculations?
#2 - The site numbers you give do not correspond to the sites listed on RR.
#3 - There are site names listed that do not appear in the RR database. (Poteau?)
#4 - Some sites are linked to the wrong troop (Mountain Pine is Garland Co, Troop K, not Troop H)
#5 - Combs list one frequency on this list and two on RR.

Don't get upset, I really appreciated the work, you did a great job, just needs to be tweaked a little.

RR lists it as Hartford, he listed it as Poteau. That implies the city.
Big difference also between Poteau and Poteau Mountain.
His list implies it was about 15 miles farther west and in a different state.

But it's all good, no fault, no foul.

Like I said, he did a great job, just needs a little tweaking.

The spreadsheet he posted came directly from the company doing the rebanding. It is nothing the OP created or edited.

Thank you very much!!! Do you have the freq's for Randolph Co. in Troop C? Apparently the RR database is not correct. I programed the new freq's off the RR data base 2 days ago and havent been able to pick up nothing. When I used your spredsheet and program BCD396T guess what, I started picking up all kinds of traffic. BUt I did not see anything in your spredsheet for Randolph Co.

Pocahontas is tower 53/C10. It is listed as "Cooley Hill" in the spreadsheet.

These serve Randolph County:
Pocahontas (Cooley Hill) 851.06250
Hopewell 851.23750
Ravenden 851.42500

I sat down with the spreadsheet you did and some printouts and added some more info. I cross referenced the frequencies with what RRef has posted to come up with the old name. There were a few that I could not figure out but it was obvious what county and troop so I set the old name as "unknown".

I am not certain which troop a tower actually serves so I just used the troop that is responsible for the county where the tower is located.

This is a PDF file but I have the spreadsheet if you would like it.

Hope this meets with your approval.
