• 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:

Yes, I'm heading to the coast this weekend.

I obviously have scoped out the database, however what are the better things to listen to while I'm parked on the beach in Port Aransas, sipping a cold one, and watching my 2 year old, and 5 month old, marvel at the ocean and sand for the first time?

Oh yea, I'll be watching their mother too in her bikini.

So, what should I be listening to other than the standard fare?

Next to a scanner...
I don't think the ferries are on the DB, but last time I was there, they were in the 150's. They are fun to listen to if you're on the ferry (not coming from Corpus, but rather from Aransas Pass).

CB is always fun to hear the shrimpers (and some high-school kids cruising on the beach) on. :)

Ferries have Intercity 154.95/155.37 and I've heard them call PAPD several times for unruly passengers/line cutters.

Shrimpers run inversion scramblers on VHF CH 9 and others.....marine VHF scanning is good on the beach.

I've caught 28" Bull Reds on the beach at Park Road 1A access right there by the Executive Keys with dead bait on a surf rig.....sure was good eatin' that night!!!!!

Nothing like laying about the beach doing nothing....and then resting afterwards.

Enjoy
