• 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 know anything about the TFS Repeaters? Specifically the San Angelo repeater. I noticed it is not longer working. I haven't heard anything from it and it no longer ID's. Have they gone P25 and if so does anyone know the NAC's?

Also, I had the privilege of reading several radios, to include, County SO's, RAC Vehicles, Game warden, & TXDOT. I only saw TAC's 7, 8, & 9. Not 10, 11, or 12. I know the not says something about them going to "Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie". Does anyone know what that's about or what PL tones are used?

I have not seen any new licenses or modifications to existing licenses in the past couple years. I doubt that the repeater changed frequencies but it's possible.

They quit publishing frequency plans and incident action plans on public web sites years ago.
The database, escpecially the AM aircraft band frequencies, and wiki information may no longer be accurate.

looking through fcc licenses for my area (San Angelo, Midland, Ft. Stockton). I'm able to identify all the frequencies listed in the license except for 159.2400MHz. Does anyone know what this frequency is used for? Also, Just FYI. Still no activity from the San Angelo repeater.
