• 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:

Word around the campfire is some of the Houston repeaters lost their antenna space (building owners told them to remove their equipment). Last I heard some of the repeaters in the system have been unlinked and will remain that way until the Houston repeaters are brought back online. The local repeater for me was constantly being unlinked by a local ham who apparently doesn't like the system coming across that repeater so I cant say whether any repeaters are linked or not. To answer the direct question, the streamer was having too much interference and decided to take his stream down.

If you are asking about the audio feed, I don't know anything about it.
If you are asking about the Saltgrass linked repeater system itself, it's still running as far as I can tell. I've been making QSOs through it on my commutes to and from work. Just this morning I heard a ham in Tyler Tx talking with another just outside of Alexandria, La and pulled over and made contact via the KD5KNZ repeater here in Baton Rouge, La. Spoke with a female ham near Hoston, Tx as I drove through midcity Baton Rouge last week. The system is still operating.
