    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:

Asplundh Tree Experts / Storm Aftermath Tree Cleanup Service

Q. Would anyone have current (confirmed) frequency information for Asplundh Tree Experts?

Asplundh is routinely working storm aftermath tree removals for power utilities on a nationwide basis. . . When there's a large vehicle convoy of orange tree trimmer trucks heading down the highway it's usually Asplundh. . . They were using low-band in years past and operated on 35.040 / 47.560 and 47.600 MHz. Curious to know if anyone in the servere weather / storm chaser / OEM / Skywarn communities might have current frequency info for Asplundh?

mostly what they run is cell phone and laptops. the supervisor from the power company will call the general foreman and tell them where they need them and they will call the available crew and tell them where to go. my brother was a general foreman for them for a couple years
