• 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:

Does anyone have any updated info for Sun Valley/Ketchum? The Database seems to be slim and out of date. Any info would be appreciated. TIA.

I don't monitor this area(too far away) and I can't really say if the database is out of date or not, but consider a couple of things:

1. The database may seem slim, but this is, in genera,l a rural area and the listed frequencies don't change very often and hve probably been in use for some time.
2. If no new frequencies or systems are added there is no need to update the database.
3. Check out the FCC licenses for the area. I think you'll find there are not that many for Public Safety and they are probably already in the database.

I was in Sun Valley for a couple of days and there is a trunked system for Sun Valley with most operations for the mountain on it. So there have clearly been some changes. It is a motorola type II 800 system. ski patrol was heard operating on this system. There's no mention of in the RR database. Thought someone might know more about it. Thanks anyway.

Having been there, you probably know as much or more about it than most people, including me. What you heard is probably all business use. Seems to be very little interest in monitoring business systems around here, much less posting information here at RR. Sorry I couldn't help more.
