    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.

Mike, my guess would be to put in some NC frequencies. Also, GA forestry freqs, National Park freqs. What kind of scanner do you have? If you have digital capabilities, NC VIPER System for Cherokee county.

Larry,

Thanks and I do have a digital scanner (996T) so I'll be good there.

How about the military fighters that use that region for training? I've seen them several times while visiting the area. (Actually I bought property now and about ready to start building my retirement home)

Reagrds, Mike

Mike -

You might also want to listen to Macon County, NC. It's pretty active there. I live in Atlanta but have a mountain house near Franklin, NC. County fire is pretty busy - 453.350. Rabun County, Georgia (next to you) is also pretty busy - fire on 154.430, SO on 155.130 and EMS on 155.205. All of these freqs are in the radioreference database. Good listening!!

Mike, if you go to http://www.grove-ent.com and click on the Monitoring Times button, Larry Van Horn has a huge list of Milcom freqs. Also, http://www.scanchattanooga.com
Matt has a really good site for the N GA, NC area you are moving to. Lot's of activity on Macon as Dave has mentioned. I travel with the wife every two-three months up to Harrah's and there is always activity on FD channels in the surrounding counties. Towers up on Brasstown Bald make for easy listening!
HTH,
Larry
