• 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.

Does anyone have the info for their system? I'd like to monitor it when I'm home on leave. I know they switched from 800 back when they sold their operation on those freqs to Nextel. They have/had a UHF LTR system in 2003 before we left the States, so I'm assuming that it's still up and running. I don't have much time at home this time around and would love to have the scanner already programmed up before we leave Spain.

Thanks alot guys and we can't wait to get home.

Do you have a possible callsign?

I'm not familiar with an LTR system in Spartanburg.

That's Paris Mountain, so I've never tried to listen from Spartanburg.

But I have the frequencies in my radio now, and I'll listen for a few days to see if there is any activity.

When they had their 800 TRS, I could hear them well into NC (almost to Charlotte). I want to say that their repeater was on Hogback at that time, but I could be wrong.

Let me know if you hear anything - I have to shut off the internet here on Thursday. We'll be arriving into Spartanburg on the 12th, so hopefully I'll be able to help with figuring their system out.

Won't be there long (leaving the 25th), but at least I'll be back in the land of wonderful monitoring! Spain SUCKS for scanning... 3 years and counting and I'm suprised that I haven't lost my mind...

I've had them in the radio for a few hours. No traffic. Not even the tell-tale open carrier every 10 seconds. I don't believe those frequencies are active at this time.

Communication Service Center has two 800MHz SMR systems on Paris Mountain, as does WMUU/Bob Jones.

I haven't found any active LTR systems in typical receive range of Spartanburg.

PS - PM me and maybe we can arrange to talk radios while you're in town.

Sounds like a plan! Anything else worth programming in before we leave here? Any new exciting digital modes?

I sent you a PM.

Nothing digital other than what you'll hear on Palmetto 800 - Greenville, Laurens, etc.
