• 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 heard traffic on 416.05 on my BC780/Diamond discone, which I thought was Fed traffic. From what I was hearing, though, it turned out to be local police dispatch that originates from 423.5.

What would cause this? These freqs seem too close to be caused by imaging...is that possible?

Eric, a little cross checking with the Ohio scanner folks would be needed, but federal systems don't all work the same way a public service system does. They work what we would refer to as hams as a 'reverse pair' - that is, the input freq is higher than the output (usually it's lower).

Some Fedcom folks might recognize the pairing. Try to dig the PL or DCS up, if available - it will help tie down the agency.
