• 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:

It appears three new 700Mhz DTRS sites in the Northglenn, Thornton area are underway and we heard traffic regarding one of them from the radio techs on id 10000 today. Based I believe on complaints from the Adams and Broomfield County agencies on poor coverage and busy signals.

1. 112th & Cherokee "Adcom antenna maze" ?
2. 142nd and Colo Blvd "Hilltop" ?
3. Thornton PD / Admin Buld ?

Better get those 996T's warmed up and keep your ears open, nothing show up as new affliations yet.

Can you do a service search on the 700 public safety band and maybe find a control channel?

Did a search of the 700 MHz band with my 396 from here in Tornton and all I can come up with is an open carrier on 768.950. It's a strong signal so I took the antenna off to make sure it wasn't a birdie and the signal fades dramatically. That's all I hear. No control channel noise or anything. I will be checking every couple of hours and will certianly post here if I catch anything.

Maybe it's not 700. Anything new in 800 up that way?

So maybe I am right??

Does this have anything to do with the post I put up about Broomfield PD going to 700mhz? Is there a scanner for this system?

It's not really a new system and yes the 996T works on 700mhz control channels.

The 700 CC's aren't even on the air and you guys are ready to chuck your GRE scanners?:confused:

It's not like you are going to turn on your scanner tomorrow and hear nothing. Even with Adcom agencies having 700 sites in the future a number of their agencies users do have a tendency to affiliate with distant sites that are 800 only.:wink:

Of course if you like spending a couple of grand every other year for upgrading scanners....:lol:

I bought a 996 about 6 weeks ago and it sounds like crap compared to my 2096. (And it is a ***** to program)

The dynamic memory and 700 capability are nice, but I would probably feel better if I would have used the money I spent for it and bought 71 Key lime pies and given all of them but one out to the neighborhood kids. ;)
