    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:

Hey Guys,
New to the hobby, had a quick question. I was going through the canadian TAFL looking for local frewqs, I noticed that some listings had the same for Tx & Rx only reversed....I was curious why ?

Here is an example...In the following format: Tx Rx Location Name

160.305000 161.145000 GLACE BAY RAC/ACFC
161.145000 160.305000 GLACE BAY RAC/ACFC

2 Seperate listing jsut reversed...Any help would be appreciated...Secondly I cant recall is it the Rx freq that is programed in the scanner or vice versa.

Thanks agian.

It means that they have to have opposite frequencies in order to hear each other. They tune each radio to receive the other's transmit frequency.
