    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 wondering if there where any fans around the Gas City I-69 Speedway. I was hoping to find the radio frequncy for Gas City I-69 Speedway. My Radio Shack scanners didn't do the job. They skip over alot of the frequncy range. Any help would be great.

Unfortunately I don't know the freq used at I-69 Speedway.


I have scanned at four different tracks and here is my procedure...

All the dirt tracks I've been to in IL and IA use an itinerant frequency. First I'd scan those. Since you have a Signal Stalker capable radio, try using that feature (I've got CloseCall hits from the scoring tower/press box myself). If you are still missing the frequency(s), I'd also search between 460.700-470.000 and 151.000-160.000. Don't overlook searching between 451.000 and 460.000 (I've been to a few minor-league baseball games where simplex freqs in this range were used at the stadium).

Finding the alternate frequencies used at a track can be difficult. They are often used infrequently, mostly in the pits, so CloseCall or SignalStalker isn't likely to catch them. When I hear them say "switch to ch2", by the time I get the radio off my belt and start it searching, the conversation is always over.
