• 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:

RR shows four TX counties with no info available...

Anyone up for travelling to those counties for a weekend and just sitting around and scouting about for frequencies and their use? It is a bit warm for this endeavor right now, but maybe in the fall.

I can take my 780 xlt mobile in the vehicle and will have a PRO-2096 and maybe a 396 soon...

Any takers, let's talk about it...

73's...cleve

Hmm, well although I cannot provide any immediate help, it seems likely that (once again) we will be on the move. It looks like this upcoming fall will find us in Amarillo, so perhaps I can do a little exploring of the two counties in the Panhandle.

Have You been to Hansford Co? Not much up there. All there is to do up there is sit around & watch the cows because there is no activity on the scanner! Spearman PD is not on a Repeater so I was not close enough to tell what frequency they are on. Hansford CO Sheriff is on 154.775 with a PL code of 156.7.I wouldnt make a trip just find what frequencies they use.

Well there you go. Hansford Co. is no longer empty. Look, I have a lot of time on my hands, when I get up there I probably will do a lot of that kind of thing. :lol:

I concur on these and have posted Shelby SO and Center PD to the DB. I was in Nac a few weeks ago and monitored some of these, but could not get the tones. That 154.845/192.8 PL confused me, so I'm glad you confirmed that info.

Thanks,
