• 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:

From Channel 9's Web site:

WINTER PARK - Two people died when a small plane crashed early Sunday morning.

Police say the plane crashed at around 8 a.m. Sunday east of Winter Park on Rollins Pass between the Grand County and Boulder County line.

Nine search and rescue crews are hiking the area in an attempt to recover the remains.

Officials say the plane may have been a Cessna.

The Boulder County Sheriff's Office is investigating the situation along with the FAA.

I figured that's what was going on when I turned on the scanner about 1:00. I used to fly and I've done that route a few times--never really liked it but it saved 2-4 hours if the winds and clouds allowed.

I _think_ (but could be wrong) that the plane that crashed would have had marginal performance at that altitude give the hot weather we've been having. Both lift and engine performance would likely have been affected.

TO: Boulder County Area Media

FROM: Cmdr. Phil West, #303/441-3621

RE: Supplemental Media Release re: Sunday’s Fatal Plane Crash

Case #06-4300

This supplemental media release provides additional information relating to Sunday’s fatal plane crash near Corona Pass in extreme southwestern Boulder County. The original media release may be found on the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office web-site at www.bouldersheriff.org

The victims of the crash were a 19 year-old Boulder woman and a 30 year-old Boulder man; their names have not been released by the Boulder County Coroner’s Office yet. Both died on impact when their plane, a single-engine, two-seat Citabria 7KCAV impacted the south-facing slope of a mountain ridge just south of Betty Lake, approximately ½ mile east of the Continental Divide, at an elevation of approximately 11,300 feet.

People camping in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area near Bob Lake initially heard the crash about 7:30 a.m. and reported it to the Grand County Sheriff’s Office. Upon arrival, Grand County authorities found that both occupants were dead and that the actual scene of the crash was in Boulder County. Medical personnel from a “Flight for Life” medical helicopter that responded to the site verified the deaths at approximately 9:35 a.m.

The remote location and difficult terrain, in conjunction with a violent mid-afternoon thunderstorm, made the extrication and removal of the bodies doubly difficult. Members of the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group packed in extrication tools on foot and subsequently removed the bodies on wheeled litters, acting under the direction of investigators from the Boulder County Coroner’s Office and Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. Approximately 40 people, representing the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, Boulder, Grand, and Gilpin County Sheriff’s Offices, Boulder County Coroner’s Office, Grand County Fire Department, and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), along with a helicopter from “Flight for Life” participated in the operation. Rescuers and investigators were finally able to clear the scene at approximately 10:30 p.m. Sunday evening

The National Transportation Safety Board will conduct further investigation in the hope of establishing the cause of the crash. The wreckage will remain on-site until the NTSB can make arrangements to remove it.
