• 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:

The last several times that I have been in the Cleona area I picked up what I believe was an EDACS control channel on 399.35. I didn't have a tapped scanner with me either time (can't bring myself to tap the 996 quite yet). I was wondering if anyone in the area might be able to run Unitrunker or another decoder on it and gather some info on it. Also any thoughts would be appreciated as to the source of the system.

Hi Matt,

I am not getting any signal on 399.35000. Are you sure your not getting an image from the County Edacs system?

I wasn't sure until today when I was back in the area and found the control channel on another frequency (399.625). I also picked up analog traffic on some additonal frequencies: 399.1125 399.35 399.7 . All had the telltale EDACS beep at the end. Throw these in your scannner and let me know what you come up with. Unfortuanately due to EDACS rapid swithing of channels and the apparant short length of the transmissions I couldn't really determine the comms that I was listening to.

FYI, Matt...

The DoD band plan in the 380-400 MHz band has the repeater outputs from 380.0125 MHz to 389.9875 MHz. The trunked system inputs are 390.0125 MHz to 399.9875 MHz. If you are hearing a trunked system in the 390's, you are probably picking up images of something else.
