    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:

Howdy, everyone!

Does anyone know what the status of the Pott. County Trunking system is? I assume, by now, that they're into the installation phase of the first two sites.

Digging into the FCC's database, I was able to find the latest "slow-growth" update, which includes a Motorola-produced system map and a couple of signal propogation maps.

These maps clearly indicate the locations of the 7 sites in the system, although the FCC licenses for the system only indicate two sites at this time.

From the Motorola system diagram, it looks like the OPPD site at Nashville (aka "Ponca Tower") might be an "entry point" for the Pott. County system into the existing ORIN/OPPD system.

If anyone has further information, please reply!

Thanks, and 73's!
