• 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:

I know the frequency is listed....that's why I posted it! Has anyone CONFIRMED or HEARD that the frequency is still active lately?

BTW, I don't listen to it regularly. There is some departure and arrival comms, but I don't think it's military....

ATC controllers don't always select up the UHF milair frequency for use unless they need it. Some do, most don't. Also, VHF and UHF are not crosspatched unless selected that way; usually what you'll hear is a multicast of the tower controller, if he/she has selected that frequency in addition to the VHF frequency.

It could be months before you hear that UHF frequency in use, especially since most military aircraft have VHF radios and can contact ATC using the VHF frequencies.

^^ bingo, they select wether or not to multi cast onto uhf ... that might not happen untill the next airshow, and even then the majority of mil traffic is pushing to vhf unless its a fast mover like f-16's and 15's cause they have more uhf radios available
