After noticing that my single-channel, old-school AFD monitor remained silent, I verified with a city employee that 158.82, which allowed listening to primarily AFD dispatch, was permanently removed from service.

Depending on the type of monitor you have, you might be able to change the frequency and still use it to listen to something else in your area. Possibly a neighboring fire department or EMS? Or else you might bite the bullet and invest in a digital scanner depending on what your local fire department uses there. I have been in your part of the state once on vacation. Beautiful area

Thanks for the kind words. Donated to www.avlradiomuseum.org, on the campus of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College. They have many scanners, HAM, test equipment, Edison phonograph, Morse code & telegraph equipment and much more . . . but no Plectron.

Outstanding!

So many electronics needlessly end up in landfills. I'm glad that someone will learn from the technology of yesterday.
