• 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:

Going through FCC licenses and such and thought this was odd. There are six licensees all on the same freq of 855.7875 within the same area. That has to make scanning fun. =\

WPVS447
WPVY339 Kearney Housing Authority
WPMU943 Platte County Communications of Kearney
WPTF548 Gary’s I-80

WQEI773

Does the FCC do this often?

Ah ok. Just would have thought on something like that who ever owns the repeater would have the license and he would just hand the other people involved their radios or however they set up their agreements.

I guess you would have to specifically ask for that channel assignment otherwise I would have thought the Freq Coordinator would have just assigned all of those users different freqs, thus why I was thinking only one person would have it licensed to them.

Thanks.
