    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:

Is there anyone in range of the FAA facility at Elkin's that can hear the controllers? We are trying to verify the UHF pair of 128.600. We (TinEar and I that is) have 387.100 listed but that is in the trunked system band and we suspect it has been changed. 128.6 is interchangable with the site at Buck's elbow in VA which I can hear very well when it is active there but I've never heard anything on 387.1 here, nor can I find the paired freq by searching.

Any help would be appreciated! Go to the Military forum and look for the FAA-ATA100 discussion. Thanks!

Here's a copy of the reply I posted in the Military Forum......

ZDC's Elkins is another one that has recently experienced a change in UHF frequencies. The UHF for the Eklins sector ZDC01 is now 226.675, paired with 128.6.

Depending on the volume of traffic and time of day, Elkins is combined with another sector, usually the Blue Ridge sector ZDC15. ZDC15 owns FL290 and below so when you're hearing stuff above 240 it's probably combined. Elkins basically owns FL240 and below and works and CKB arrivals and some PIT arrivals they hand off to ZOB.

The Elkins sector has the ability to transmit from either Elkins or Bucks Elbow RCAG.
