    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 have a "strong" control frequency showing at 853.1875. However, the system ID is not showing yet. There is nothing showing in the databse in this or surrounding areas. Any idea of who this might be? thanks.

Earlier this summer on 853.1875, along with 853.9875, 851.1125 and 851.0625 there was s silent carrier being transmitted on these four frequencies, and every ten seconds or so there would be a "beep" just like 'fail soft' tones that activate when a trunked system is having problems. Just recently the control channel data noise came back.
These used to be licensed to a company that provided trunked two way communications, called an SMR. Currently these channels are licensed to Nextel in the Chattanooga area, but Nextel is leaving this end of the band and going higher, when "rebanding" takes place within 12-18 months. So I am just as baffled as to what these freqs are used for. I wonder if the compnay that abandoned this system just left the transmitters wired to power and their just transmitting "unattended?" If any else has some thoughts please chime in!
