• 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:

WCCCA has recently put up their new tower on Canterbury St. in Tigard. The thing comes complete with fake? branches from the top to help in blend into the trees. Quite a sight. Does anyone know if this new stick is operational yet? Can we get it into the database if it is?

It is my understanding that it is part of the Simulcast system. Although there will be some new frequencies being turned on for that system (or so it would appear from looking at the FCC license info), I do not believe they've been turned on yet.

(As I can just barely pull in the WCCCA simulcast system from my location in Gresham, I don't have strong enough signal to monitor to see what frequencies are actually in use. If you monitor and can confirm any 86x.xxxx frequencies in use on the WCCCA simulcast -- and not part of the Clackamas county simulcast -- I, or any of the db admins, will be happy to update the database.)

Lindsay has mandated that no unconfirmed information goes in the database, including systems (or frequencies) that are not yet in use.

new wccca tower....(continued)

took a closer look this am at the new tower on Canterberry St. From a distance it appears to be set up and ready to go, however, a closer look shows none of the cabling has been done to the tower, so, for now... we just have to wait.
