• 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:

Are those being used in SoCal? I believe I heard traffic on 151.2875 yesterday but thought it was interference from something else.

You will get interference on them since they are splinter channels, and narrowband, so neighboring signals will interfere.

There are such a limited number of them as referenced in the above post, and aircraft signals travel so far due to the nature of aircraft (high above the ground) that almost any air tactical frequency will get used in any area at one time or another.

Each area has their own pre-assigned air tac, however these areas are large and all it takes is two fires and they need to order a new one.

As far as I know right now there are no units pre-assigned number 21 or 22, they just use the original ones and those are used as overflow basically.
