• 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:

There has been alot of traffic tonight on what sounds like a tow company picking up vechiles and taking them to different locations. I thought this was an aircraft Channel?

You are hearing an image frequency. There are no tow trucks or businesses on the 118-136 mhz aircraft band. Try a different receiver on the same freq.

You are hearing an image frequency that is 21.6 MHz higher than frequency displayed on your scanner. This is common with single conversion or older scanners.

The frequency you are hearing is actually 153.350 and is part of a business trunked LTR radio system.
