    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.

Listening to AirEvac's unit here in Bowling Green, it seems as though they are still relying on either the Campbellsville transmitter or the Hopkinsville transmitter to communicate with their comm center in Missouri, or am I wrong? Does anyone know if they have planted a tower around the Warren County area or if it's even in the plan?

A few months ago I talked to the folks from Lifeteam and they said there were no plans to put a tower in Warren County.... the guy told me their existing network of towers has the coverage they need using 153.380/D051 as the primary and the other freqs as needed http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&aid=1219

these are posts from previous threads....

finally found my notes, the tg I heard AE 62 on was 03184 (Medcom EMS - Dispatch Channel 2)

AE was given authorization and a portable radio to operate on Warren County fire mutual aid channel. This will allow them to talk to all the fire departments in Warren County and also with the Med Cen Dispatch. AE also has the ability to program conventional radio frequencies while in flight.
let me know if you heear themon any other freqs, we'll get them in the database....

I have heard them on our TRS ocassionally, mainly coordinating LZ info with county fire and EMS. When I have heard them on their ops frequency it has been when they've been airborne with some altitude. Thanks for the info.

no problem.... I monitor everyone flying in the central part of Kentucky.... and hear Lifeteam on a number of their "Company" freqs in addition to their approach to UK on UK's freq.... AEL43 flies missions from the southern part of my monitoring area frequently... and I hear AEL 14 (Albany) and AEL 33 (Middlesboro) fairly often....

Are you hearing anything on the Tennessee freqs.... I am never that far south for long periods of time so i can't listen too well....

Nothing yet on the TN frequencies. I do monitor STATCARE's ops as their transmitter is just over the hill in Glasgow. They do visit both medical facilities here in Bowling Green. Vanderbuilt's Lifeflight is a regular here as well, although their ops transmitter is a bit too far for reception. We'll continue to monitor....

Caught AirEvac 62 coordinating with EMS on a collision in Warren County last evening, using 463.150/MED7. They were coordinating with Med Center EMS dispatch for some reason and not the responding unit. At one time AirEvac was using a mobile unit on the 800 TRS to coordinate with the county volunteer fire units for LZ coordination. No fire units were sent to this wreck though. The mission was canceled due to non life threatening injuries.
