• 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:

If you're on the west side if Michigan, you should. Sector Milwaulkee now covers most of Lake Michigan. I believe their high site is the Sears Tower. They replaced Grand Haven.

I hear Grand Haven full signal every day, including all the weather and hazards reports. Where did you read this about Milwaukee?

I can't find the origional post, but it was from a guy that used to work ( he is USCG) at Grand Haven and he was saying that their Com operations were moving to Milwaukee and it is now known as Sector Lake Michigan. The same thig happened in Detroit. The old Group Detroit became Sector Detroit and it took over most of the coms. for the area. I don't hear St. Clair Shores and Belle Isle as much as I use to. The post was about the USCG realigning their Coms. and using more High Sites, and remoting some of their equipment to central sites, and the stations have access to the High Sites.

Well, anyway, this was the only time I've heard Milwaukee on a handheld so far. It was scratchy to full quieting for a few minutes, this is why I posted it to the Skip / Tropospheric Ducting Forum.
