    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.

Hello all, I think I may have found a UHF EDACS system in Norwich and would like some more info on it if anyone has is (Such as LCN/Etc.)

The call sign for this system is WQJW546

The frequencies for it are as follows (Unknown LCN)

461.4500
462.0375
463.2625
463.3000

It is an EDACS system licensed to 574 Norwich New London Turnpike in the city of Norwich, Which I believe is 3 rivers college.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

This is one of Marcus' licenses. It's likely to be LTR/LTR Passport and could have a number of users on it.

I did see marcus spectrum holdings in the license search, But if it's LTR (of any variety) why would there be the "machine gunning" noise on the control channel? The control channel is 461.45, But occasionally it would switch to one of the other channels with the same noise, then it would continue to scan.

I'm using a BCT15 fyi. I'm going to switch it to LTR and see what happens.

After looking at Marcus' website, it appears they also deal in Tait equipment so it could be an MPT-1327 system.

I'm not familiar with the BCT15, but I would imagine it would give to CC info if you put it in as EDACS.

I have tried putting it in both LTR and EDACS, and there is no control channel info given. Absolutely no idea on what to do now. I will try with my BCD396T when I get it back, Or IF I get it back. And like I mentioned, I have heard the control channel type of noise on one of the other channels as well. I just can't seem to figure out anything on how to listen to this system, So I'm stumped.
