• 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:

For the past several days I have been receiving a fairly strong signal on 858.6875 here in East Central AL (Tallapoosa Co). The signal is an EDACS control channel, LCN 3. This info was learned from using Wtrunker384a3 (etrunk). The frequency shows to be licensed to Nextel in several AL locations.

And to further confuse things, the Mt. Cheaha (Jacksonville) site of the State of Alabama EDACS system went silent (again) at the same time as this new signal appeared. So questions abound reference this new signal. Since the Mt. Cheaha site has never been used a lot, it may take awhile to learn what is happening or has happened.

So anyone on the East Central side of the State, keep your ears and radios listening out for some changes.

Rebanding? I know in my State Indiana, they have a new frequency, when I look it up in the database, it shows both Nextel and New Albany as having the frequency. But it now has a YE designation meaning rebanded.

Perhaps this is the case.

Well tonight the control channel (EDACS) on 858.6875 has disappeared and the control channel (EDACS) on 856.7125 has reappeared. I wonder if the 858.6875 signal was a boo boo? Strange but after 16 years with the State of Alabama, nothing would surprise me.
