• 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:

I'm getting some awesome coverage tonight in the Sacramento area. Hearing Marin Co's TRS very loud, as well as Caltrans D4 system full scale which I've never even been able to hear a peep from here. Just checked San Mateo's TRS thinking I didn't have a chance and that's coming in full scale as well.

ANyone else having this much luck?

Equipment is Uniden BCD996T with Discone about 30 feet up, 50 foot RG-8 coax.

I'm jealous. I've been busy moving to a new apartment, and haven't had a chance to fire up the scanners much. Can you hear Fresno at all? That's cool that the south and north Bay are coming in so good.

Don't have anything from Fresno Co in the radio...yet. I used to hear Fresno S/O from my old home in Martinez frequently. Haven't tried it here though.

Probably due to an inversion layer over the Valley, keeps the signals from escaping upward. Norm.
