• 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:

They are still in use (personally have monitored) for backup if WyoLink goes down, and also in areas where WyoLink has no coverage (either dead spots, or no tower coverage yet). - Tom

Is anyone able to confirm where they are actually used (Troops/Counties/Locations) and no longer used? In my area, not a peep...but doesn't nessesarly mean its not in the radio..

If backups, I'd like to adjust the descriptions, etc for a more accurate database.

All of the old frequencies/towers/PL's are programmed into the new WyoLink radios under a zone (what we scanner listeners would call banks) for conventional. I haven't heard them much, but when they use them it's because the WyoLink (digital) was getting through or in areas where WyoLink was spotty. - Tom

I know the 155.445 is still being simulcast with WyoLink in the Rawlins area as there are lots of multipath issues. This extends down and around the Elk Mountain site.

I frequently hear them from laramie as well.

I know that in the Casper area I have not heard a peep for over a year.

The 155.640 (SALECS) is still in use statewide as a backup and still primary for some G&F folks.

I'm presently in the Jackson area and Wyolink is not heard; and 155.445, 154.875, and 155.91 (all WHP) are used as well as 156.105 (Wydot). Snow King is apparently not on the air.

Hey, hpycmpr, if you are still in the Jackson area, have you tried 155.535 as the Snow King control channel? The Windy Ridge site at Dubois shows Snow King as an adjacent site and active. - Tom

Thanks. It's now the new CC and I'll see what happens. I tried yesterday plugging in all 12 channels in conventional mode and heard nothing - no control channel noise unless the PRE-600 filters it out. I'm SE of Moose in the park and should have good coverage.

Success! Thank you, WyoWabbit. The control channel for Snow King is now 155.535. I've only heard WYDOT so far. It is quiet.
And it is definitely a mixed mode of Wyolink and conventional for state and local agencies in Teton County.
