• 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:

OC Hotel/Condo listings are getting harder to find these days on FCC listings as seems more and more listed under anonymous LLC partnerships and some
also sign up with local private LTR radio networks and sometimes just plain old FRS/GMRS radios.
Glad you asked as search today revealed a lot of OC Condos and Hotels I had listed before are no longer listed.
Best bet is to use newer scanner like BC-246T with close call search and also do a band search 450-470 range and some older
radios in 151-153 range.
Not much to hear on Hotels anyhow except maybe room service going around.

The best listening in OC is their City 800 EDACS system for Beach patrol,Police,Fire etc.
System works well and if anything is going on in town you will know.
Check RR database board here for info...

Thanks, Mark.

We go out there every summer for a week and there's occasionally some security stuff happening that might be interesting. But typically, hotel comms are boring.

I went ahead and copied the O.C. EDACS system information into my BC-396T so I'll try that out on Saturday when I get there.

Thanks for the assist.
