• 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:

While driving through the Huntsville area recently, I heard a medical helicopter dispatch (Airevac?) on 151.505 with 051 DPL. "Huntsville tower" was mentioned. I don't see anything in the FCC database for this.

That is one of the 'Itinerant' IG class frequencies. No one in Alabama is currently licensed for that frequency according to the FCC's own database nor are any 'construction' permits on file. The closest ACTIVE licenses are in Tennessee just north of Huntsville and none of those are related to medical activities of any kind. However, since it IS an itinerant frequency, the licensing could be from just about anywhere if 'temporary' operations are taking place in that area. Hopefully someone with more up to date info can assist with this one...?
