    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 would be interested in having them. I'm south of you in Slidell, and haven't had much luck receiving the St Tammany frequencies due to simulcast.

ok guy. When went through the area from the state line to the Bogalusa area. I did not receive any signal from any LWIN Tower. But from the Bogalusa to Desintation I recieved the Sheridian Tower. At the destination, I recieved the Sheridian and the St Tam Sim towers.

We went the Abita Springs ands the West Mandeville areas. I know I recieved traffic on The LWIN systems. But do not remember what Towers it was. I can them when I start to review the data tommorrow night

Will post some of the files in WIKI hpe section.

I am in Batesville,ms area for the night. I have trouble recieving any Sginals from the MSWIN Tower around here. I am at the Hamplition Inn off I-55 on the Bottom floor,. Last Thursday we were on the 2nd floor. I think the heightt at which I have it at, Is the problem. Will try again in the morning from the Mobile ant on the way home. Ok that;s all for now..

Taje care all.

Question??

I'm curious. How can one tell what tower one is listening to on a simulcast system. I have been unable to find that info on Pro96com or Unitrunker. Just curious. Drive careful going home. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving day.

To the best of my technical knowledge, if your listening to a simulcast system, there is no way to tell which tower your listening to. They are all on the same frequency and transmitting the same information.

You just need to know what the control channels are and scan those. Audio distortion will occur in the tower overlap zones and a directional antenna will help. If the audio delays were not set up very well, the audio distortion you get is hit or miss.

Depending on where you are in the state, you can find either good coverage or marginal coverage. If you were in St. Tammany Parish, there should not be any place in the Parish where the signal level is poor, except inside some metal buildings. There are 8 towers now in the Parish that provide great coverage.
