• 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:

Yea, I knew what it was. It popped up on my Signal Stalker 2055 mobile with a Maxrad 1545 dual band 3db gain antenna. Most older Fed ch's are now used in the simplex mode. Those still using repeaters are encrypted. Thanks for reply, Larry

I could have sworn I've heard an ATF unit on 165.2375 PL 100.0 in the Columbia area. Apparently there is a repeater in the Columbia area, but it isn't used very often.

I've read that the ATF uses 165.2875 MHz (PL 100.0 Hz). Any chance it could have been that?

That's OTAR (over-the-air rekey). It's changing the encryption key in the radios.

Yes it is an ATF freq, BUT, they rarely use any repeaters. Surveillance simplex is the common use for all Federal VHF. What I heard was surveillance.
