• 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:

Up here in my loft in Middletown, CT using a BC895XLT and RS telescoping whip on a 90 deg. connector I got a message "Palisades Parkway". I think this is eithe NY or NJ. The frequency I think was 160.125 but I cant confirm it as the message was very brief and the scanner started scanning before I could get a real good look at the frequency.

Yeah I've been there. It's a drag. I try to keep the light on and stay ready to press PAUSE button on the Pro96.

It's possible that you heard skip, though consulting the RR Database and/or WIKI would probably help you decide for sure.
