• 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:

Hello

Next week I will be in downtown Austin for several days and was hoping someone might be able to advise which tower(s) I should program in my 396 based on where I will be at (Omni Hotel downtown). I was planning to simply program the simulcast sites, but since I'm not familiar with the system, I'm not sure which is best.

Thanks ... Mike

S1 or S2 ... or both.
Both S1 and S2; place the same talkgroups on both sites. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why which group shows up on which site. I see APD and AFD on both layers at the same time all the time, but TCSO seems to be busier on S1 most of the time.

You might also try the 700 mhz tower (110) just for grins - there's some Capitol and a little DPS traffic here, plus we don't have any voice channels for this site in the DB.
