• 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:

Friday I never received any indications of transmissions on the Muscatine/Scott County Simulcast site. Well they were using it Saturday afternoon. 100 recorded audio files. But today so far nothing. It's either feast or famine. Also had a short transmission on the 4227 for Aircare. but more been have on the RACOM TG.
DPS Call 1, 3 hits
LAW 3D, 83 hits
LAW 4D, 6 hits

Also have a wildcard which show a TG 1 entered and it has 7 hits. a couple was unit 372 calling Cedar Falls for a radio check (no joy).
Mike traveled to Cedar Rapids today and no activity on the tower west of Clarence yet fyi.

Finally hearing some traffic on the Burlington tower from IHP cars in this part of the state.

Got OP25 running on a Raspberry Pi and waiting for the parts to arrive to build an antenna multicoupler. Then I can reconnect my analog scanner back up to see if IHP Base is still being used.

I still hear ISP on analog down here.

I am seeing plenty on the unitrunker screen, but not hearing anything on my TRX-2 or 325P2.
I’ve been scanning both the Dewitt and Muscatine towers for a couple months or more on my 996P2, but this was my first hit on either. Got lucky tonight.
