• 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:

Southwater? Runion? Watson?

I have lots of DMR repeater traffic here in the Ft. Pierce, FL area that is full scale. Both are very busy. Is FEC going DMR? Or do I have a slamming good band opening going on?

160.6200 CC1 TG1 TS1 is a dispatch frequency.
160.2900 CC1 TG1 TS1 is a busy yard operation.

So, who went DMR in rail land?

That's it. SCFE is clearly heard and understood...now.

I always thought of them as the Sugarcane Express, and never heard much of them before on analog. Not a busy line. Maybe more so now during the sugarcane harvest. I live next to the FEC line and close to the Ft. Pierce yard. These DMR signals are really STRONG for that distance. I mean...a Diamond discone up 30' fed with hardline can't be that good! Or can it? I was also hearing the JF dispatcher from CSX across the state, as well as others. Just playing with my TRX-2 with new NXDN update looking at railroad service search. Wow! Hot scanner!!!

Thanks!

Phil
