    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.

OK thanks for playing, not a problem you would need a 96 or 2096 to log the control channel, enjoy monitoring and please keep us advised on activity on the new site.

New DTRS Site in Huerfano County

Looks like Huerfano County just got their WINS funded DTRS site up. I think it's on Sheep Mtn and I'm now hearing the CC on 868.650. Here is a Pro96Com tower file for it.

I thought my last post of the tower file had too many channels in it for a rural site. Pro96com must have added the new tower information to the old. After deleting the my old tower0153.txt file and capturing again I now have a more reasonable list of channels.

Last week there was a missing person search in Delta Co. I heard one deputy on VHF say 'contact SO-2 on 800'. I was on ID Search and did not hear anything. A few days ago I heard 2 Delta Co deputies talking on Delta (868.5250) but did not get the talk group. Anyone else log the talk group? An article in the Delta Co Independent news about a year ago, the Sheriff said Delta Co would switch to CODTRS in 2007. Apparently they have purchased some hand held radios. (NOT pac-sets - a pac-set is a radio packed around on your back - I just had to put that in here as no place in the country except Colorado still refers to hand held radios as 'pac-sets').
