• 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:

Just throwing out a guess here, but maybe the U.S. Marshels "Con-Air" for transporting inmates?? or maybe something like that. Since it was at a military base maybe it's the military version? Just a guess.

Justice Dept is now flying illegal immigrants around( picking up along the way) and debarking at central site I think is in Texas where they are sent back home(south). I know they make several stops, one of them in Ill, Louisiana..not sure of other stops. This might be what you are hearing.
I was offered to work for a company doing contract with goverment to suppliment US agents.

I worked at Scott AFB for 6 years as an air traffic controller in the tower. That is the so called "CONAIR" flights done by the US marshels. They come in fairly often, atleast once a month sometimes more. What you really need to do is get in the parking lot of the termanal with an opto scout or something with the close call feature and see what you can get for ground operations.

Ok, I moved away about 3 months ago. I'm up in the Rockford area right now. Time for you to get a digital scanner down there huh? I just picked one up, couldnt hold it back any longer. The base is on an APCO25 vhf system, you should be able to get them from 50 out with a digital scanner and a good antenna. Good to hear from someone in the area.

I am waiting until the state moves into the Starcom21 system for good and go from there,I know a guy who works for ISP Comms in this area and he says they are looking at December before it is completed.

I will get a digital,I am hoping by then I can get a good deal on one and not pay through the nose for it lol

Well good luck, they typicaly dont lower the price unless it is useless LOL. I have to recommend the 996T, it is the first over the counter scanner that is a great piece of equipment. Its worth the money, you wont be dissapointed!

I've been leaning towards the 396 due to it's portability.

But the 996 looks like an awesome radio as well. :)
