• 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:

They just gave out 159.30 as a primary air to ground freq - N of the City of Murrieta - PL 127.3 maybe - 4 SEATs have done drops but they are done for the night I think - Great Packman Lake will be used for water supply (thats what he said :) - 100 to 150 acres - maybe a different fire - Fire Number 575 - yup might be a new fire

That feed you linked to is actually scanning Cass County along with the Texas Forest Service Linden Dispatch office, not Upshur County. The Forest service in Linden covers at least 14 counties in NE Texas including Upshur which is why you heard talk about fires in Upshur County.

The Bear Creek fire is the big 50,000 acre fire that is between Linden, Avinger, and Jefferson that has pretty much been contained, but mop-up operations are still ongoing.

The Marshall fire popped up today just East of Marshall along I-20 along with the Marietta fire.

There is multiple aircraft in the area that have been working the Bear Creek fire including Helicopters, CL-215 Scooper Planes, and Heavy Air Tankers (P3's) and lead planes, and have been hitting other fires as they are popping up.

Boulder, I saw that Marshall fire coming back from Navasota yesterday. It was a sick plume, and I saw it from all the way in Carthage on the 79 loop.
