• 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:

Ok guys, help me out here....

I know someone told me that "several" of the MARCS tower sites are "data only" sites and that is why those sites aren't listed here in the RR database (becaust they are just data sites)...As a for instance, the Apple Grove site on State Rte 7 in Gallia County isn't listed. Neither is the Turkey Run Rd site.

I've been in the Turkey Run site. There is only ONE of the MOTO transmitters there.

The Gallipolis site has the same number of transmitters in it as what is listed for freqs here in RR for it. I know it IS a voice site (Gallipolis)

I was talking to someone today who thought that EVERY tower site was a voice site and only "some" were data sites.

So, I'd like to let them know they've been misinformed (if that's correct) regarding the DATA ONLY tower sites....

Data Only Sites

I heard a MARCS radio tech tell a Gallia-Meigs Trooper this afternoon that the Shade site was a data only site. Apparently the trooper was trying to get his radio to "read" a signal strength from that location. The tech told him he's never "see" the Shade tower because only the voice sites ID'ed a location....
