    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:

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all enjoying the snow throughout Virgina as much as we are here in the Baltimore area. This snow is giving me a chance to plan my trip to Tennesse next week and this is the reason for my posting.

I plan to travel I-81 from Strasburg to Bristol and would love some advice on how best to monitor VSP along this route. I plan to set up one system for the entire VSP conventional system but am not sure how to deteremine if I should monitor any of the STARS system. If I should monitor the STARS system I would need advice on which towers to monitor.

I have a BCD 396XT. I look forward to the advice.

Thanks,

Rick - KR3LC

You would be able to get the Fork Mt. CC on STARS while you are in parts of the Shenandoah Valley... that being said, STARS has not rolled out into the valley, yet. So there really isn't much traffic relevant to the I-81 corridor on STARS, yet.

It should be conventional all the way down I-81. If you have looked up the VSP conventional database already, you will be in the following Divisions: Culpeper (Ch. 11) from the WVa line, then Appomattox (Ch. 6), then Salem (Ch. 12 & 11- yes, 11 again). Then I suppose Wytheville... I'm not too familiar w/that part of the state and I'm not sure of which channel.

Hope it helps.
Todd
