    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:

I'm planning a trip on the Norwegian Cruise Liner Escape.

Bringing the SDS100 for shipboard VHF/UHF comms.

The Tecsun with AM loop for SWL/BCB.

I have the DMR option installed on the SDS, just can't find what freqs the Escape uses for on board comms.

first, you had better be certain you’ll be allowed to bring that radio onboard.
I called customer relations, scanners are allowed. NO amateur radios/ walkie talkies.

NCL has been moving to DMR, however no reports for the Escape.

99.9999% of ships use the same frequencies.
457.5000 - 457.8250
467.5000 - 467.8250
Whether they use the 457 or 467 as the output, varies by who did the programming.

Norwegian Cruise Line after trip summary

Port, NYC, ship NCL Escape.

The SCS100 was flagged/held at security. They sent the radio to the ship, where they advised me to see Customer Relations

I was escorted to an off limits crew area, where I talked to a very nice officer, (Commander, 3 full stripes on uniform)

He wasn't aware what the radio was used for, I explained it was to monitor Coast Guard, marine freqs, FM radio etc.

I showed him the NCL webpage re scanners NOT being prohibited.

He gave me the radio back, and I told him I'd be discreet (headphones) in order not to alarm anybody.
