• 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:

Has anyone noticed that BWI tower is on 123.75??
Is this a new freq. or a temporary thing.
If it is new what is the UHF freq.?

Jack, I put a note on one of the MilAir posts a couple of days ago about that. The 123.75 is an alternate Tower freq and they've been switching to it for periods of time and then back to the normal 119.4 freq. I have no idea what's up unless they are doing maintenance on the radios. A lot of the time, the Tower will simulcast on 123.75 while using 119.4 as a primary. I haven't heard an alternate UHF Tower freq.

Ground Control will sometimes switch to their alternate too...120.2 rather than the normal 121.9. Both 120.2 and 123.75 are shown in the database.

120.2 was used about a week ago when an Alert II Aircraft Box was dispatched. it was used for communication between the ground control, fire apparatus and the aircraft.
