• 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:

Solomon’s Island Recreation center (Calvert County)

The wife and I will be camping there this spring. Last weekend we drove to the annex to look around. The camping office (on the right hand side, just before you go in the gate) had several antennas on the back end of the building. They did not appear to be the right length for either the 400 MHz or the 380 MHz trunked systems for the base.
A search of the Calvert and Saint Mary’s databases did not provide any insight.
Anyone here know what the antennas are used for? Are there any frequencies in use specifically for the recreation complex? I was thinking they may have same conventional (business band?) frequency pairs to coordinate.
Do the DOD police at the Recreation complex use the same talk groups as the DOD Police at Patuxent River?
Thanks in advance for any information.
