• 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:

DMR propagating into Pickens County some mornings


Mar 15, 2004
Sometimes the Clemson PD freq. of 453.925 gets hammered by DMR control channel traffic, this can have a disruptive effect on CPD comms. Even though the mode and pl mis-match is enourmous, some interference results when strong ducting phenomena occurs.

I have made several loggings of this traffic from the Pickens County area, and have discovered it comes from Jackson County, Georgia. The RR database does list a DMR control channel from one site there- (Jackson County, Ga.) -on the frequency of 453.925.
Ho-hum, just another propagation anomaly, but a mystery I had wanted to solve.

Just for info. Pickens County Emergency Management has a 155.7225 Mhz frequency in the FCC database that shows both NB FM and DMR as emission modes. The repeater is shown as being at Glassy Mtn. If it is on the air, it should be easily heard.
