• 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:

There used to be a business SMR system, don't know if it is still active. It may have been sold to Nextel along with most of the others around here. When you say you "once" found it, how long ago was it? Weeks, years? Was it 800 or UHF? If you're on a hill and the conditions were good it may have been Richmond. Also, I think AEP has a system south of here on High Peak in Amherst.

I can make a call Monday and ask.

RR database still has Henry Fuller's LTR system on UHF listed but I haven't heard anything on it in a while and Henry's semi-mostly-retired now.

Are you in the area?

Jack:

My guy wasn't in yesterday, I'll try again. I searched 849-860 all afternoon in both CC only and regular FM and didn't hear any type I activity. I did hear some wierd stuff on 952.something when I was up around Ruckersville. I could still hear it in town but very weak. The FCC link on here had no listing for that freq in VA. I will try to get back up that way soon and maybe make an MP3 recording.
