    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:

During a recent trip through the state I logged what sounded like railway comms, on 155.5800mhz with a CTCSS of 146.2. Is this a commuter rail dispatch freq???

There are no commuter trains in KY that I am aware of. 155.58 is usually assigned to police service. What part of KY did you hear this?

155.58 with a pl of 146.2 is used by the Louisville Metro Police as suburban F-3. That's an information channel as well as special detail channel.

So if you were within 50 miles or so of Louisville, that's probably what you heard.

Based on other loggings it was certainly within 50 miles of Louisville. They were definately discussing trains and when tracks would be occupied...unfortunately didn't get long to monitor them as I was on interstate driving from Nashville to Toronto...
