• 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:

Chaffee County - last three weeks (m/l) I've noticed a lot less traffic on DTR from Chaffee County Sheriff's people and Salida PD in particular. Some traffic, yes, but greatly dimished. Always makes you wonder if it's your own radio and not the DTR system, so I've checked and nothing's amiss that I can see, but have they switched to other freq's? Or what? Are they doing a lot more cell calls? TI've seen other agencies coming off the BVCF, Methodist, and Poncha towers. So I don't know. Just wondering.

From where I'm located (near Wal Mart) Salida is very active. I hear all the activity through the Poncha Springs radio site (2-069). Methodist is geographically closer, but I am in its shadow and can barely hear the data channel.

Are you by chance using a GRE or Radio Shack scanner? If so, why not run Pro96Com on the control channel you normally listen to to see the actual decode rate and activity for all users of that site...
