• 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:

While searching through the VHF band for possible new STARS CC's, I found a system that I cannot identify. I have run Pro96com and have a little more information, but no call sign was displayed. I am receiving the signal in Rockingham County, but it is a little weak. I searched through the RR db and have not found anything P25 in VA or WVa.

CC is 153.1700.
System ID: 89A
Tower ID: 144 (T012C)
WACN: 01DB6
it displayed a site ID: 142 (T012A) ch 00-1006 Freq: 153.5150

CC 153.170 is also listed as Ch. 00-0868

I only ran Pro96com for a short period of time this morning and. Any ideas what or where this is???

Ah ha, I believe that is the answer. Thanks, guys. It looks like the CC is in Madison County.

I am able to monitor that site from Fredericksburg, and I think I was the one who submitted it to the database. I was kind of surprised when I first saw what I was monitoring!

For future reference, if you find a control channel and can obtain the SysID from the scanner or Unitrunker or whatever, you can look up systems by SysID on this page:

RadioReference.com - Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference Database

(See the third section of the page, on the far right.)
