• 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 came across this P25 control channel at Exit 10 on I-81 in Maryland (north of Hagerstown, MD). SysID of 005 and Tower of 0101. 005 is listed in the RRDB as unknown in VA but with a different control channel. Do not know if this is the same system as I did not get the WACN ID. It was not a really strong signal on 385.025. Possibly a Joint National Capital Region system.
