• 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:

I'm too close to the Lake Kickapoo site. I can usually hear a weak signal on 216.98 all the time. Probably from tropo scatter and airplanes.

Tom, I am close to Kennedy Space Center. I have an R-7000 set to 216.990 with a log periodic pointed to the NW. I don't have a pre-amp, so I don't know if I will get anything or not. It is just coming over California now, if it did break up, maybe there would be enough of a reflection to catch an echo.

I worked there about 20 years ago back when it belonged to the Navy and like to check every once in a while to see if it is still on the air. I don't have a SSB/CW receiver so I just listen in AM. I wasn't paying attention and missed this last pass.
