• 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:

OK...I have been to the Vegas Valley twice since I made this thread and i have some questions about SNACC.

The DB shows that Black Mtn and Arden are different sites but Hooligan in a past post states that they are the same site near Henderson. Is one of these Red Mountain as I see a site there according to the SNACC website but no frequency listings for it.

The Boulder City site from past posts says it's at the water tank but the FCC says it's at the Hoover Dam Lodge. Related: What NSRS site covers Boulder City area?

Is there a control channel for the SNWA Lake Mead site?

I just want to get my file correct and text tags accurate for my next trip to Henderson/BC around Memorial Day weekend or sooner. Any other info would be appreciated. I am using a PRO 96/2096 combo

Thanks

If you are just staying around Henderson/BC, I would use the Black Mtn and Boulder City sites. Normally I just use Black Mtn it covers BC pretty good. But if you are heading to North Town (Speedway etc) the Apex site covers the north end of the valley.

Just FYI, they moved the Black Mountain (Arden Peak) site last year to a new location on the mountain to improve coverage around the Railroad Pass area -- the site/location name is now Geneva St. Doing so did reduce the site's footprint for the SW part of Henderson (Anthem area), so I would no longer count on Black Mountain/Arden & Boulder City to provide great Henderson coverage.
