• 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:

Doesn't look like anybody submitted anything about the system.

Is there a reason why there might be some kind of repeater at the St. Johns Hospital in Lebanon, Mo?

I can actually pick this system up pretty good in various areas in Lebanon. close to the hospital.
As well as close to where I work (near the VF Outlet Mall).

I can even pick it up as far West as Conway, Mo, which is where I live.
Usually I don't get too good of a signal in the garage with the door closed but I was just listening to it.
I am using a Trunklip Mount with an Antennex 450-470 (1/4 wave) antenna, can't think of the model # off hand.

The only thing on the tower at St. Johns Lebanon is all VHF stuff at the moment, nothing from the fort. There will be a UHF repeater going up before too long in the area (maybe at the hospital, maybe not) for ground to air comms with Lifeline Aircraft.

They may have actually built a decent system :p ! I know that I can hear the Springfield/Greene County System here in Lebanon on a portable, but the FLW System is 400 so that would allow for better distance.

I know with their old EDACS System they had some issues with coverage off post, particularly when the FLW Fire went off post on mutual aid assignments. Maybe they decided that having some surrounding coverage would also be good?
