• 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:

helping a scanner listener with an interest in the Tennessee State Forest Service. Is this under the TACN system, is it called TNWLDLFResources or TennDept of the Environment. Or are they just analog and not under TACN.

TN Dept of Environment & Natural Resources. They are just starting to begin transition to TACN. They run VHF analog and make heavy use of local fire dept systems, as well as VFIRE nationwide freqs.

TWRA is the Law Enforcement/Game Wardens. They run P25 on VHF and TACN. They have encryption capabilities, and do use E on TACN sometimes. It is not full time.

The database contains a separate entry for the Division of Forestry. A quick Google search revealed that it is actually part of the Department of Agriculture.

They are currently using a legacy system of analogue VHF hi band repeaters and mobile units, with UHF portables operating through vehicular repeaters. They're quite active in southeast Tennessee, the frequencies are in the database.
