• 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:

I was picking up 443.750 pl114.8 this morning in Champaign, IL. (EN50) A quick lookup on the repeater list shows that this is a repeater in Chicago, IL. Note that I was mobile in town picking this up all the way to work, so not too shabby. I was also hearing another repeater which I believe is in Terre Haute, IN on 146.715. (didn't check the PL on that one though) Fun times. :)

EDIT: Equipment used was a Kenwood V7A mobile rig with a Comet CA-2X4SR mag mount on the trunk.
