    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:

I have noticed a lot lately especially around Davidson County that 159.330 and 159.435 are linked/simulcasting, so are all region or field office TDF repeaters linked together and how is there dispatch setup?

Each Forestry district has a set of repeaters that are linked together by microwave and using a voting comparator system. The repeaters have different output frequencies but the same input. When a subscriber unit keys up, the comparator picks the cleanest signal and repeats it to all of the repeaters on the system.
Each main district office has a dispatch.
